• High School Summer Options

    KSD Credit Recovery - In Person

    • Credit Recovery allows students who have failed courses during the school year to address work and grade deficiencies, with the goal of achieving a passing grade and earning credit for the course.  
    • Students participating in Extended School Year for credit recovery will attend class on campus, beginning June 1 and continuing each Monday-Friday morning until they earn a satisfactory grade in required courses or until June 24, whichever comes first.

    KSD Credit Enhancement

    • Credit Enhancement allows students to take courses during the summer months that they might otherwise need to schedule into their academic school year.
    • Students taking Health, Personal Finance, or Lifetime Fitness (PE) for credit enhancement will take courses online, via Schoology, between May 31-June 28.  These courses will be taught by KSD teachers, using Kirkwood curriculum.  
    • Sections for Health, Personal Finance, and Lifetime Fitness will be capped at 33 students per class, with three sections each of Health/Personal Finance, and two sections of PE.  Students who cannot be accommodated will be free to take these courses via Launch.

    Credit Enhancement and/or Adaptive Academies via Launch - Online Only

    • All current 8th-11th grade students can take online courses for credit this summer through LAUNCH, a KSD partner based out of Springfield Public Schools.  There is no cost to families OR the Kirkwood School District for these courses, with funding through the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
    • Launch courses are offered from June 6-30 and July 5-29.  Students can potentially take up to two courses per month or four courses per summer, if desired.
    • Students who do not log in and participate within the first two days of each session will be automatically dropped by the LAUNCH office.
