CROTHERSVILLE — A variety of opportunities are being offered this summer to keep the learning and fun going for Crothersville Community School Corp. students.
During a recent meeting, the board of education unanimously approved Interim Superintendent Robert Hooker’s recommendation for permission to post the teaching positions available.
Summer school will be offered for elementary and junior high students from 8 a.m. to noon for 14 days.
A teacher and a teacher assistant also will be needed for I-READ 3 students and for sixth, seventh and eighth grade math.
For the high school students, summer school will be available through Crossroads Education Inc. from 8 a.m. to noon for 20 days. Classes offered will include algebra I lab, algebra I, algebra II, algebra II analytical and geometry.
The summer school dates are to be determined, but Hooker said it will be in June around the same time so students have access to breakfast and lunch.
High school students also can participate in summer school at Austin High School. Classes will include physical education, E2020 courses for credit, remediation math (integrated math I and II), remediation English (creative writing) and math enrichment and go from 8 a.m. to noon May 31 to June 17. Breakfast and lunch will be available daily.
These classes are tentative depending upon sufficient demand and enrollment, as Hooker said there must be a minimum of 15 students every day. This is an opportunity for credit recovery or high school credits, he said. More than one credit can be recovered in summer school.
Austin provided a form for students to fill out if they plan to attend summer school there. That’s available in the Crothersville school office.
Also this summer, Crothersville is offering a robotics camp and an art camp for grades 4 to 8. Both will be from 9 a.m. to noon for eight days (dates to be determined).
For each camp, a teacher is needed for grades 4, 5 and 6 and then another one for grades 7 and 8. Students will receive 16 hours of instruction.
Anyone interested in applying for any of the teaching positions should send or drop off a letter of interest to the central administration building, 201 S. Preston St., by May 13.
