Welcome to Summer Programs at GISD
GISD Summer Learning is an opportunity for students to engage in learning experiences that address their personalized needs. GISD acknowledges the challenges that our students and families have faced over the past year due to the pandemic and we are committed to offering additional learning support through our summer programs.
We are proud to offer several options for summer learning and summer programs for GISD students:
Summer Learning for High School Students
The focus of summer learning will be to develop a strong foundation for the 21-22 school year or, in the case of seniors, an opportunity to finish credits needed for graduation.
Summer Learning: Jumpstart for grades 1-8 (invitation by principal only)
GISD is excited to offer a new summer learning program for our students: JumpStart! This program provides engaging, hands-on, and personalized learning for students currently in grades 1-8. The goal of JumpStart is to support student summer learning in preparation for a successful 2021-22 school year! Elementary JumpStart will take place at both Williams & Purl Elementary School. Middle School JumpStart will be at Tippit Middle School. Participation in GISD Summer Learning is by principal invitation only.
