WVHS Summer Rising Letter to Families - 6.9.2021
Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:
The NYC DOE has allocated funding for schools to create Summer Rising programs for students that are student-centered, experiential, academically rigorous and culturally responsive and sustaining. Our hope is to provide an opportunity for students to re-connect and re-engage with one another.
These are the academic opportunities we will be offering at World View this summer:
Summer Academic Support (NX Tutoring)
Students who received an NX in Fall and/or Spring must attend mandatory NX Summer Academic support to remediate these classes. Teachers will provide targeted instruction and support for students to complete their NX coursework remotely (Monday-Thursday, July 6 - July 16, 9 AM - 2 PM) and in-person (Monday-Thursday, July 19 - July 30, 9 AM - 2 PM).
Remote Enrichment Courses (if enough students are interested)
These pre-designed 1-credit courses will be taught through online work on Google classroom/meet.
- Financial Literacy: This pre-designed math-based course will provide students with real world skills in making smart financial decisions. 1 high school credit (July 6 - August 13, 9-11 AM)
- Leadership: Believe, Lead, Change!: This pre-designed social studies & ELA-based course will prepare students with the leadership skills to be active and thoughtful participants of our society. (July 6 - August 13, 9-11 AM)
Advanced Placement Summer Seminars
- AP Seminar: This workshop will prepare students who will be enrolled in AP Seminar next year with the appropriate skills and knowledge. (Monday-Thursday, July 19 - July 30, 9 AM - 2 PM)
- AP U.S. History: This workshop will prepare students who will be enrolled in APUSH next year with the appropriate skills and knowledge. (Monday-Thursday, July 26 - August 6, 9 AM - 2PM)
Thematic Seminars - Enrichment, Community Building & Social-Emotional Support
These seminars will take students on an explorative journey of a particular topic/subject over the course of two weeks (Monday-Friday, August 2 - August 13, 9 AM - 2PM). Throughout the seminar, there will be opportunities for students to socialize and build community with one another through in-person learning and trips.
In addition, if any student needs additional course credits in Mathematics, Social Studies, English and/or Science to meet graduation requirements and it is not being offered at World View, then it will be available for students to take on Campus this summer.
We ask students to take the time to submit this survey to express their interest in the Summer Rising programs we will be offering. The survey is accessible via this link: https://forms.gle/ZenJCWJ1tu7xkvgJ8
