2023 CPS Online Summer School Information


    • Dates:  Summer School runs from Thursday, June 1 - Wednesday, June 28;
    • Where to find your course: Students should see their courses among their other courses in Schoology starting Tuesday, May 30th (Which is, yes, earlier than "official"/in-seat summer school.  We do this to help any students with other demands during June...e.g. the Tetons Trip);
    • Informational ZOOM Meetings:  We will be holding OPTIONAL informational ZOOM meetings for anyone interested in learning how CPS Online summer school courses work.  This is a basic introduction, ideal for first-time summer school parents.  The same information will be shared at these meetings (i.e. attend ONE). The ZOOM links will be emailed directly to families signed up for one/more CPS Online summer school courses.

    • Students can work on coursework anywhere that is convenient to them (i.e. do not need to report to school to work on their course);
