Laramie, Wy – Starting this year summer school programs in Wyoming are getting a huge boost. To start with the state legislature doubled the funding for them and created new requirements for the summer school courses.
The assistant superintendent of schools in Albany County, Suzanne Perry, says this will allow districts to use innovative techniques to help students learn. And she says that should increase the number of students that take advantage of summer school and entice teachers to come and try out some advance approaches.
Perry says under the new system students won't just come in and retake a class they failed. There will be an emphasis on improving specific skills and once they have that down they can leave the program.
