Summer Learning Camp
This summer Willoughby-Eastlake Schools will offer Summer Learning Camp (SLC) for students entering grades K-8. The SLC is designed for students needing academic intervention in reading and math based on performance data. The Summer Learning Camp will be offered Monday, June 26 through Friday, July 28, 2017. The camp will be at Willoughby Middle School and the hours are 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Registration information will be mailed to qualifying students in the beginning of May.  
Third Grade Reading Guarantee
Under Ohio law, 3rd grade students need to demonstrate proficiency on a reading assessment in order to be promoted to 4th grade. The reading assessment can include the AIR test or an alternate assessment approved by the state. The alternate assessment Willoughby-Eastlake offers is MAP. Our district offers the AIR test three times per year (fall, spring and summer) and MAP testing three times per year (fall, winter, spring). If a child demonstrates proficiency on one of these assessments, s/he will be promoted to 4th grade. Current 3rd grade students not meeting the state criteria for Third Grade Reading Guarantee will be invited to Summer Learning Camp. These students will participate in intense reading instruction the first two weeks of camp and then have the opportunity to take the reading AIR test on July 11 and July 12, 2017. After the summer administration of the reading AIR assessment, these students will be able to participate in all of the Summer Learning Camp activities.
