Excellence for Every Child
KCS will be offering a virtual summer school from May 25-June 22 at all high school locations. After a few days in the classroom, all courses will be offered online—with the exception of Driver’s Education, which will be offered only at Central High School and Hardin Valley Academy. Teachers who are interested in pursuing a position for the summer and are a level 4 or 5 teacher, may choose to apply for virtual summer school (at all schools) or Summer Bridge (at these sites only—Austin-East, Bearden, Carter, Fulton, Halls, Karns, Powell, and South-Doyle). Summer Bridge programs will need two teachers, one math and one English; one teacher will be designated as the lead teacher. Virtual Summer School at all locations will require two teachers, any certification. Interested teachers should email the principal of the schools at which they wish to apply. An application is attached. Teachers may also attach a resume to their email. The deadline to apply is Wednesday April 12. Please also, post pertinent information on your school's webpage. Attachments for teacher and student applications are included below. In addition, student applications for summer school should be made available in your school counseling office. Again the dates are May 25-June 22 from 8:30 a.m. to noon, which is 3.5 hours per day for 20 days. The rate of pay is $40 per hour (minus deductions). Principals will conduct interviews and select candidates to recommend for positions. Once recommendations are approved, the selected candidates will be notified by May 21.

Are you ready for Adventures in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)? Two of UT's largest research centers, CURENT and NIMBioS are working together again this year to create another fun and educational summer day program for middle school-aged girls. Students will be immersed in a week full of hands-on activities, lab visits, and team projects in UT labs and classrooms that expose the exciting challenges of being a scientist or researcher. Overall, the week will be geared towards students who are interested in expanding their knowledge of engineering, math, and biology. Click here for additional information!
