Rich Township High School District 227
Summer School 2021
Dear Students and Parents/Guardians,
Welcome to Summer School at Rich Township High School District 227! Due to the COVID-19 shelter in place order, all summer school classes will be held both remotely and hybrid this summer. In-person classes will be held at the Rich East Campus (300 Sauk Trail, Park Forest, IL 60466), with the exception of Extended School Year, which will be held at the transition center. Summer School for credit recovery will be virtual and will run from June 7 to July 15.
AP Boot Camp will be virtual.
The following in-person programs will run from June 7 to July 15 (6 weeks): Senior Intensive, Star Academy, Driver’s Ed, and Extended School Year (ESY).
The following programs will run from June 14 to July 15 (5 weeks): RAMP, Freshmen on Track, ELL, and Special Education Enrichment. This is a change from what was previously communicated.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) summer program will be in-person and run from June 28 to July 15 (3 weeks).
Summer School is an opportunity for current students to take classes for enjoyment and enrichment. It also gives students a chance to experience success in courses in which they have not done well in the past. Please look over the course offerings and choose one per semester that interests you. Students may earn ½ credit upon successful completion of the semester.
Credit recovery classes will be offered through Edgenuity, which is an online platform that we currently use at District 227. Classes offered in this format will be self-paced and predominately independent. Students taking a Edgenuity course will have access to support within the online platform. A District 227 facilitator will also be available to assist students with issues that they are experiencing. A teacher will monitor student progress in the course and keep students on track to complete the course within the allotted time. All students will need access to technology. Additional information regarding technology distribution is forthcoming.
Students recommended for extended school year (ESY) as a part of their I.E.P. should contact Ms. LaRhonda Taylor at [email protected] or 708-679-3100.
