District to offer summer school

The Cheatham County School District is excited to announce plans for its 2023 summer learning camps.

Starting Monday, June 5, the district will offer no-cost summer learning camps for current K-12 students.

Priority enrollment letters are currently being sent home for select students.

Transportation, breakfast and lunch are being provided at no charge.

Each camp will offer a mix of classroom learning, physical activity and other fun experiences, with a full-day schedule for current K-8 students and a half-day schedule for current 9-12 students.

Students will have an opportunity to get caught up academically before the 2023-2024 school year begins. In grades K-8, the camps will consist of English language arts, math, academic intervention, STREAM (science, technology, reading, engineering, arts and mathematics) and physical activity. High school students will have credit recovery.

The camps that are being offered by the district are funded through a Tennessee initiative to assist schools and students with learning loss related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including ESSER funds.

The elementary school and middle school camps will run from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. June 5 to June 27. The high school credit recovery sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. June 5 to June 27.

Due to the third-grade retention law, there will be two make-up days for third-grade students only on June 28 and June 29.

Ashland City Elementary STEM Academy, West Cheatham Elementary School, Sycamore Middle School, Cheatham Middle School, Sycamore High School and Cheatham County Central High School students will attend summer school at Cheatham Middle School.

Pleasant View Elementary School and East Cheatham Elementary School students will attend summer school at East Cheatham Elementary School.
