A few readers (see here) say that schools are being discouraged by their AIOs from sending kids to summer school.
I have no idea if that's true or not, but thought that this memo from last month to elementary principals about the summer school decisionmaking procedure might be interesting to look at. Towards the back, it includes directions for principals about how to rate kids, and a draft letter to parents that's apparently supposed to be used to tell them whether their kids are going to summer school (which starts Monday) or not.
Take a look and let me know what you think. (BTW, who's Jacqueline Anderson, the writer of the letter? Never heard of her.) Memo_28_summer_school_preparation_2006.pdf
