Team Chesterfield families:
We are excited to share information about summer learning opportunities for Chesterfield County students. Participation in these opportunities is optional.
Middle and high school summer learning opportunities include the review of course content and skill development taught during the 2019-20 school year (Recovery of Learning) and the chance to advance learning by taking classes not previously taken (CCPSOnline).
Elementary school summer learning opportunities (Recovery of Learning) will offer students the opportunity to access a personalized curriculum in mathematics and language arts that covers course content from the grade level they currently are in and allows them to progress beyond the current school year if they are ready.
- Registration for free middle and high school Recovery of Learning courses opens May 18 at 8 a.m. Registration for these classes closes June 15.
- Registration for CCPSOnline is already underway. Registration for these classes closes June 17.
- Registration for free elementary school Recovery of Learning courses is May 25-June 15. More information will be available soon at mychesterfieldschools.com.
Information about additional supports and/or opportunities available for students with disabilities and English language learners will be shared once finalized.
Information about the school division’s summer learning opportunities by school level is as follows:
MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Recovery of Learning programs
Middle and high school students will have the free opportunity to access a complete personalized curriculum for any core course (math, language arts, science, and social studies) for which they are currently enrolled. Some elective courses are available also.
Core content courses will have teachers interacting online to support students through goal-setting, progress-monitoring, virtual office hours, and small group instruction. Elective courses are self-guided and will not have an assigned teacher. Recovery of Learning opportunities will be structured through Edgenuity courseware. (Driver’s Education and Behind the Wheel will not be offered this summer.)
All courses provide students an opportunity to move through the content at their own pace and to test out of content previously mastered. The middle and high school Recovery of Learning program begins on June 29. Here are the course opportunities available via the CCPS Recovery of Learning program.
Visit the Recovery of Learning site to register.
If a student wishes to register for a credit-bearing course not previously taken in order to accelerate their schedule, they should visit the CCPSOnline website and complete the online application.
Here are the course opportunities available via CCPSOnline from June 22-July 30.
The average online class requires 4-6 hours of work per day, and students are required to take a proctored exam at the end of the summer session. All courses will have teachers interacting online to support students through all aspects of a fully online course including whole class and small group instruction, assignment feedback, facilitated discussion, goal-setting, progress-monitoring, and virtual office hours.
CCPSOnline courses are $250/credit for Chesterfield County residents and $500/credit for non-residents.
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS
All elementary students with Internet access and a school-division issued Chromebook or personal device (home computer, tablet, smart phone, etc.) with the minimum system requirements to run each application will have the opportunity to access a personalized curriculum in both mathematics and language arts that covers course content from the grade level they were in during the current school year and also allows a student to progress beyond the current school year if they are ready.
Students will work in three primary applications described below. They will have a licensed teacher interacting online to provide support through goal setting, progress monitoring, virtual office hours, and small group instruction. All courses provide students an opportunity to move through the content at their own pace and to test out of content previously mastered.
- Dreambox: Computer-adaptive math application (mathematics) System requirements
- MyOn: Digital library of books and reading materials (literacy) System Requirements
- Lexia Core 5: Comprehensive computer-adaptive literacy skill-building application System requirements
Paper packets will continue to be prepared and made available at schools twice during the month of July for students who do not have access to online learning opportunities.
The elementary school Recovery of Learning program begins on June 29th. Information about registration, which starts May 25, will be sent later this week.
