Summer school is a win-win-win
Placeholder Image
It's always gratifying to see a win-win situation - especially when our youth come out on top.The Monroe school district's summer school program is just such an example.The district hosts two three-week sessions each summer, running from June through July. The current session will end July 23. It's a popular program: More than 1,200 students take part in summer classes - which translates to about half the district's attendance of 2,500 students for the regular school year.Many of the offerings differ from what people may think of as traditional summer school fare.
