Pinellas announces summer school dates

The Pinellas County School District will roll out its massive summer school program for eligible students in kindergarten through 12th grade from June 17 to July 24, the school district announced Monday.

The Summer Bridge program for elementary, middle and high school students will run Monday through Thursday, preparing students to enter the next grade level and preventing summer learning losses. The program targets students who are performing below grade level or could use extra support to stay on track. Eligible students will be notified by invitations from their schools in mid-March, when the registration period opens.

The elementary program runs from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., middle school from 8 a.m. until noon, and high school from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m. All high schools will offer Summer Bridge courses, but elementary and middle school locations are being finalized.

The program drew more than 9,000 students in its inaugural year this past summer and cost about $3.1 million in state and Title 1 federal funding.
