Summer School Information

2020 Summer School

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many aspects of our lives, including our students' learning experience during the last weeks of the school year. We know that this disruption could have an impact on a student's readiness for the coming school year, and we are making Summer School plans to support students prior to the start of school.


Based on your child's academic performance prior to March 16 as well as his or her work and participation during the Digital Learning Days this spring, we are recommending that your child attend Summer School. We believe that this summer learning opportunity will be vital in preparing your child for the upcoming school year. This face-to-face learning experience will support your child primarily in the areas of language arts and math. 

GCPS is considering two options for Summer School, based on the start date for the 2020-21 school year.

  1. July 6 - 21 (12 class days) - 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. These Summer School dates are based on our current school calendar for next year, with August 5 as the first day of the 2020-21 school year.
  2. August 3 - 21 (15 class days) - 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. These Summer School dates are based on a delayed start to the 2020-21 school year, with September 8 as the first day of school in a revised calendar.


This K-8 Summer School learning opportunity is at no cost to students and breakfast and lunch will be provided. Summer School registration for recommended students will be open from May 30 to June 8. Families must complete the 2020 Summer School K-8 Enrollment form online in MyPaymentsPlus. Students recommended for summer school will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.


We anticipate finalizing the dates for Summer School by mid-June. This decision will be based on current information from our health partners and conditions within our state and community. GCPS will continue to follow the most up-to-date safety guidelines as outlined by the CDC.


Your school will contact you regarding the status of your child's Summer School registration along with start dates and times. Please feel free to call your child's school if you have any questions regarding the Summer School experience.
