The Trigg County Public School System decided recently not to continue its summer school program, and will instead help catch students up on normal school days.

Amy Breckel, the Next Generation Learning (NxGL) Coordinator for Trigg County Schools, hopes its replacement, the Flex Day program – currently in its first year – will keep students from needing summer school, one of its main purposes. She also thinks the Flex Days will have something for all students.

“What we’ve chosen to do is to not have summer school,” said Breckel. “Typically, what students would do is if they do not get credit throughout the year for the course, they would take two weeks during the summer to go to summer school to make up any work they had not completed to earn credit in that class.”

Breckel said they really want everyone to learn at a “mastery level,” and two weeks during the summer isn’t enough time to go through enough content to get someone who is behind on that level.
