Summer Learning 2021 Basic Information

For eligible students who are entering Grades 6-8 in the fall, Knox County Schools will be offering a 4-week Learning Loss Summer Bridge Camp that will begin on June 1 and will run through June 28. This camp will include 6 hours of daily, in-person programming from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday-Friday, including:

  • 1 hour of intervention
  • 1 hour of physical activity


Eligibility

Families who are eligible for the Summer Bridge Camp received a notification via email on March 10, 2021.

Eligibility for this program is based on factors including individual student performance on state reading and math assessments; a student’s fall semester grades in math or reading / language arts; and economic challenges facing families.

 

Additional Benefits

The Summer Bridge Camp will be provided at no cost to families, and will include the following:

  • Bus transportation
  • Free breakfast and lunch meals
  • Pre- and post-camp testing to measure student progress

All camps will adhere to the district’s current health-and-safety protocols for COVID-19.
