Elevate Summer School Program (K-8)

The East Greenbush Central School District has created a new summer school program for K-8 regular education students in July 2021. The goal of the Elevate Summer School Program is to help fill learning gaps created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Tuesday, July 6 – Friday, July 30
  • Monday through Friday
  • 8:45 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.
  • Location: Columbia High School
  • Principal: Kathleen Russell,
  • **Transportation will be provided on a hardship basis**

Elevate Summer School Program 2021 is in person, to help prepare students as they transition to the next grade level in the fall. We will focus on addressing academic and wellness concerns that may have been created during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The final day to enroll for summer school will be Friday, July 2 due to required planning which includes staffing, furniture and instructional materials.
