Summer Learning Program Opportunities

Edgecombe County Public Schools is excited to offer several summer learning programs for students in Grades K-12 this summer. Your child may be eligible for one or more of the programs mentioned below. Please complete the Summer Learning Interest Form to assist our schools and transportation department in gauging interest in and planning for our scholars to continue learning this summer.

Please contact your child's school if you have any questions regarding the programs or your child's eligibility to participate. In some cases, actual eligibility cannot be confirmed until later in the school year, but providing us with your interest in participating now will assist our district and schools in making the necessary plans for our Summer Learning Programs.

Please complete the form by Thursday, April 14th. Completion of the form doesn’t guarantee enrollment in the summer programs. Your child’s school will provide further details and notify you of actual enrollment once eligibility has been determined closer to the end of the school year.

ECPS Summer Learning Programs:

All ECPS Summer Learning Programs will have transportation available and will serve breakfast and lunch onsite for students. Each program will run Monday-Thursday during the time frames provided. The information below provides you with an overview of what each summer program opportunity entails.

Summer Remediation, Enrichment, and Retesting Program

  • Each 4 day camp will run Monday-Thursday and feature a specific subject area.

      • Science - 5th Grade & 8th Grade Students and Students enrolled in Biology. Camp dates: June 6-9

      • Math: 3rd-8th Grade Students and Students enrolled in Math I or Math III. Camp dates: June 13-16

      • ELA: 4th-8th Grade Students and Students enrolled in English II. Camp Dates: June 20-23

  • This summer program provides our district and schools the ability to provide remediation and enrichment opportunities for students currently in grades 3-12 in the areas of Reading, Math, and Science. Students that perform at a NP (not proficient) level on an EOC or EOG during the 2021-22 school year will be eligible to participate. Students are eligible to retake the assessment only after receiving targeted remediation and support and will then attempt to demonstrate proficiency through retesting at the end of the remediation week. Each EOG/EOC area will have at least 13.5 hours of targeted enrichment and instruction prior to student’s being provided the opportunity to retest and demonstrate proficiency by scoring at a level 3, 4, or 5.

  • High school students will also have the opportunity to work through credit recovery options if needed.

Read to Achieve Summer Camp

  • Students currently in Kindergarten-3rd Grades

  • Dates: June 27th-July 21st

  • Student Hours 8:00AM-2:30PM

  • Reading is at the core of all instruction in kindergarten through third grade. In the early grades, students learn foundational reading skills that build deeper comprehension skills as they progress through the grades. Students must have strong reading skills to be able to succeed in all other subject areas. The goal of the Read to Achieve legislation is to ensure that every student read at or above grade level by the end of third grade and continue to progress in reading proficiency so that he or she can read, comprehend, integrate, and apply complex texts needed for secondary education and career success. Read to Achieve Summer Camps provide students in need of additional support in reading the opportunity to receive at least 72 hours of targeted instruction to improve their reading skill sets and assist in avoiding summer learning loss.

Summer Bridge Program

  • Students enrolling in Kindergarten in 2022-23, rising 6th Grade students (current 5 grade), rising 9th grade students (current 8th grade)

  • Dates: June 27th-July 14th

  • Student Hours 8:00AM-1:00PM

  • This summer program will provide a minimum of 50 hours of programming, no less than 25 of which will be dedicated to academic learning acceleration. For the context of this program, academic learning acceleration refers to appropriate grade-level content. For example, rising 9th grade students will be provided 9th grade material and not 8th grade remediation.

Summer Career Accelerator

  • Students in current 5th-11th Grades

  • Dates: June 27th-July 14th

  • Student Hours 8:00AM-1:00PM

  • The goal of this summer program is to build our Career and Technical Education programs at the middle and high school levels by exposing students to various careers and providing opportunities for industry tours. Our goal is to provide students with experiences that may spark their interest in these areas and lead to an increase in the number of students gaining certifications and credentials through our CTE courses and career pathways.
