So Much For Summer School Attendance

Apparently, Summer Bridge attendance doesn't matter for kids who pass the SAT10 and have passing classroom grades.

From CPS: "In the best interests of our students and due to inaccuracies

in attendance reporting for summer bridge, we are not retaining

students who have more than three unexcused absences, but meet the

following promotion criteria: passing classroom grades and SAT10 test

scores. If you find other inaccuracies, please e-mail the student


So, in theory, a kid could ditch all summer and take the test (when

does that happen) and cross his or her fingers. Not much fun if you're

a Summer Bridge teacher or admin, though.
