6.1. Student Celebration: Middle School Students Earn High School Credit at The Career Academy Summer Program
Rationale: 
BACKGROUND:

Over the past several years selected students attending Title middle schools are given the opportunity to earn high school credit in the summer prior to their 9th grade year.  This summer we completed the second year of a similar program at The Career Academy (TCA).
 

EXPLANATION:

For the past several years, students who attend Title middle schools and who are selected by their principals and counselors, have the opportunity to earn credit for two high school classes during the summer prior to their 9th grade year.  Generally, the first three weeks of class are at their middle school and the second three weeks, at the high school they are attending.  This summer we completed the second year of a similar program at the Career Academy encouraging students to consider TCA as an option later in their high school journey.

This Student Celebration features:  Linda Hix, Director of Federal Programs; TCA Administrators, and incoming ninth grade students to describe the experience.

Jenny Fundus, director of Special Education for Lincoln Public Schools, said this about Belmont Elementary School and the honor:
