Appomattox County Public Schools provide remedial summer school for selected students at middle and high school levels. Instruction is offered during a three-week period, June 10-28, Monday-Friday. Transportation is provided from central pick-up locations within the county for all students. Summer school sessions for 2019 will be provided at Appomattox Middle School for AMS and ACHS students with the hours of 8:30 am - 11:45 am.
Summer school sessions for APS and AES students will be provided at Appomattox Primary School by the YMCA Power Scholars Program. Selection of students is based upon an application process conducted by the YMCA Power Scholars staff. Dates are June 3-July 3 with hours of operation being 8:30 am- 4:00 pm. Transportation is provided from central pick-up locations within the county for these students as well.
Students are recommended for summer school based on their academic progress and specific needs. Performance on the Standards of Learning assessments is one consideration used in determining a student’s need of this program.
Appomattox Middle School has a promotion policy that requires students to pass the four core classes, as well as one additional class. A student’s performance in the core academic classes of English, Math, Science, and Social Studies may indicate that s/he is in need of summer instruction. If your child does not pass each of these courses, s/he will be requested to attend this program. This will provide your child the opportunity to review specific skills needed to progress to the next grade level.
Remediation is available to any Appomattox County High School student who passed a class but failed the end-of-course Standards of Learning assessment for World History I and II, U.S. History, Algebra I and II, Geometry, Earth Science, Biology, Chemistry, English Reading (11th grade), and/or English Writing (11th grade). In order to retake the SOL test, the student must attend summer school.
