Summer Success 2020

Posted May 4, 2020

Summer Success will be held both in-person and through Virtual Learning in the Independence School District. Parents can choose in-person or ISD Virtual Learning. Summer Success will run July 1st through July 31st Monday through Friday for all grade levels. Registration is closed but parents can email or call 816-521-5508 to be added to a waiting list. 

You can click here to view a short video about the new ISD Virtual Learning platform used by school districts K-12 and higher learning across the country. Canvas will include a daily live teaching component, attendance and grading expectations for credit.

Elementary summer school locations will be determined based upon enrollment numbers and will be communicated out in early June. Summer Success for 6th grade will be at Bridger Middle School. 7th and 8th grade Summer Success will be held at Pioneer Ridge Middle School. 9th through 12th grade Summer Success will be held at Truman High School. Virtual middle and high school would include core courses only, plus health and personal finance.

As we make plans for Summer Success, you can expect additional communication in the weeks ahead regarding increased cleaning and other precautions as guided by health officials. We will have thermal temperature scanners at all school sites as well as other health and safety protocols. If we are unable to open for Summer Success due to any local or state guidance, we will transition to an all Virtual Summer School.

We are planning for and hope to see students back in our schools on July 1st.
