Twinsburg Schools is beginning a new online summer school program this summer to give top students a chance to accelerate through basic math and science courses during a nine-week summer session.
Four courses will be offered: Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2 and physical science. The cost for the session, which runs from June 3 through August 5, is $300 per course.
Sign up for the courses will happen between May 14 and May 30.
District officials say the online classes are designed for high-performing students who are looking to step-up to a high level of math or science. The online summer school is not designed for remediation.
An orientation is scheduled for May 14 at 6 p.m.
The class will give, for example, an incoming freshman who got an A or B in eighth grade math a chance to take Algebra 1 during the summer and then, if they do well in the class, jump straight to Geometry when the school year begins.
While the class will be mostly online, with guidance from a licensed teacher, students will report to the high school to take quizzes and tests.
If you have questions or want information about the new program, contact Mrs. Jackie Krajcik in the high school guidance office.
