Online Summer Exploration
DD2 is proud to announce the return of the Online Summer Exploration (OSE)! These offerings provide the opportunity for students to further explore topics in math and english language arts. An added benefit is the prevention of "summer learning loss," all from the convenience of your home via any Internet-accessible computer.
To receive maximum benefits from the program, the students should average two hours a week over the 8 week program. Middle school students that complete 16 hours of Compass during the program dates will be entered to win one of the following prizes: A Samsung Chromebook or one of five iPod Touches! There will be a winner at every school!
Certified Teachers will electronically monitor student progress and communicate progress with parents by email.
Participation in the OSE is voluntary. OSE has no impact upon promotion, retention, or placement.
