Summer school registration now open

School District 73 will offer summer school courses at NorKam Secondary from June 29 to July 23

Kamloops-Thompson secondary school students in grades 8-12 may now register for summer school courses, delivered face-to-face and by distance learning, in a variety of subjects.

School District 73 will offer summer school courses at NorKam Secondary from June 29 to July 23 with options for remedial course credits and full credits in English, Social Studies, Math, Science and Communications.

New this year, @Kool (Kamloops Open Online Learning) will also offer courses for students enrolled in distance learning and will provide drop-in opportunities for support each day at NorKam Secondary.

“Summer school provides students opportunities to take core courses so they can avoid repeating the full course the following school year,” says Derek Wales, principal at NorKam Secondary.

Remedial course offerings are a total of 40 hours each and are for students who achieved at least 40 per cent in a course during the school year. Students who are successful in meeting requirements of the remedial course will receive a C grade.

Additionally, students who received 40 per cent or higher, but want to achieve a higher letter grade than C, may also take a full-credit course.

The district will also offer Planning 10 support from 8:45-11 a.m. and 11:30-1:45 p.m. at NorKam Secondary School.

Registrations for summer school will be accepted until June 29.

A full list of courses and a registration link is available on the School District’s website at www.sd73.bc.ca.
