YUHSD to offer robust summer learning options

Yuma Union High School District will offer wide-ranging summer programming for students to recover credits, retrieve learning, and take part in enrichment classes.

YUHSD Summer Learning takes place June 1-18 from 7:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Monday through Friday. All classes are free of charge and will be held in person at all six campuses.

“Summer Learning is an opportunity for students to get caught up or get ahead,” YUHSD Associate Superintendent Lisa Anderson said. “After a year of so much change, offering students an expanded number of courses and opportunities for growth became priority for our teaching and learning team and our campus leaders.”

YUHSD schools will offer up to 24 core courses and electives over the 18-day period, with each course equivalent to one semester of credit. Registration closes Monday, May 24 or once classes are filled. Students must sign up for summer learning with their school counselor.

“Regularly attending school is important to a student’s academic achievement,” YUHSD Director of Educational Technology & Learning Management Bibi Frazine said. “Students are expected to work on their classes daily and will have support from teachers in the classroom.”

No-cost breakfast and lunch will be provided daily. Transportation to-and-from school will also be provided.

Additionally, Arizona Western College is offering summer school courses available to YUHSD students, the Migrant Portable Assisted Study Sequence (PASS) program will offer economics and government courses, and Yuma Online Distance Academy will offer online courses.
