Summer School

Summer school offerings at MHS will be different this year to incorporate additional learning renewal needs caused by the pandemic. The traditional goals are driver’s education, credit retrieval, and an incoming 9th grade Bridges Program. During the extended school year, MHS will also incorporate a diagnostic system to develop tools to provide a multi-tiered approach to tailor help for students during the school year.

To develop the most efficient summer school format, discussions will include in-person, hybrid, and eligible students. (Driver’s education requires in-person classroom instruction as well as behind-the-wheel.) The list of teachers is longer this year based on student numbers and summer school structure. Some teachers may be needed in an hourly-tutoring format while others provide instruction and grant credit as the teacher of record. Due to learning renewal needs, it is important to have high-impact tutoring during summer school and the extended school year.

Teachers approved for summer school include: Driver’s Education-Brock Zinke, Heath Raley, Aaron Sester, Mary Stephenitch, Robb Nunn; Credit Retrieval and/or Bridges Program-Mel Sallee, Alisa Stewart, Veronica Becker, Kristi Barajas, Nicole Cromwell and Mazelle Martin.
