SummerT.I.M.E. is a series of summer learning experiences designed to allow students the opportunity to participate in positive learning and engage in various fun-filled projected-based learning activities such as Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), Literacy and Social Justice. These experiences will afford students in grades K-11 informative sessions to develop skills employers and colleges are currently seeking in individuals such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, communication, innovation, and systematic problem-solving.
SummerT.I.M.E. Learning Camps and Programs will provide building blocks for our students and opportunities to “get connected” to real-world problems. These Summer Learning opportunities will also target important reading, writing, and mathematical skills that will be essential for students’ readiness for the next grade level.
The SummerT.I.M.E. Learning Camps and Programs are free to currently enrolled CCPS students. “Our SummerT.I.M.E. Learning Camps have set the standard in Metro Atlanta as other districts have used our highly effective model to build summer programs of their own, said Dr. Morcease J. Beasley, CCPS Superintendent/CEO. We are excited to once again provide this wonderfully creative learning opportunity to our students during the summer months.”
“While we are hopeful that we can transition to in-person activities, our experience gained during the 2020 SummerT.I.M.E. program, which was conducted in a virtual environment, has provided us the experience and knowledge to make the 2021 program more effective and more fun,” he added. Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) is continuing to monitor national and local reports regarding the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19). CCPS is considering various learning models which may include (but not limited to) virtual, face-to-face and/or hybrid instruction.
The SummerT.I.M.E. applications for students and teachers will go live March 8, 2021. As in the past, CCPS will use a lottery system for selecting students to participate.
