Spokesperson Elaine Naleski confirms this morning that Colorado Springs School District 11 has decided to drastically scale back its summer programming, in response to budget troubles. But that doesn't necessarily mean that all elementary and middle schools will keep out miserable kids until August.
Naleski says the reading and math programs for students entering grades K through 8 will not be offered at the district level. However, she notes that individual schools are reviewing their budgets right now, and may decide to offer programming on their own. Best idea is to check in with your kid's school later this spring, to see what, if anything, is in the works.
Credit-recovery courses for high-school students will still be offered.
