Florala City School is plann- ing a consolidated P.L. 89-10, Title I, summer school for stu- dents presently enrolled and preschoolers who will be en- rolled the 1970-71 term in the Florala City system using Flor- ala City School facilities. The curriculum will offer further basic instruction in the subjects of English, mathema- tics, and reading for a period of six weeks for grades two through seven (2-7). Enrollment in these classes is based upon teacher recom- mendation of students who must successfully complete summer school on the basis of achieve- ment and attendance before pro- motion to the next grade will be determined. Only on the basis of avail- able space will any other stu- dents be permitted to enroll in these classes upon personal request. Six weeks of preschool will be conducted along the lines of a first grade program, but lack- ing, of course, the length and depth of one, to give preschool children a preparatory "peek" at the attitudinal, behavior, and achievement levels at which they are expected to attain. This program is for area young- sters who have or will have attained the appropriate age for school entry the following term in the city system. Since the Florala City system will be instituting a complete modern math series in the fall, a summer foundation course in this subject is being offered fro grades three through eight (3-8). This course willbe avail- able on a strictly voluntary basis, but it will be highly bene- ficial to eligible students for intensive instruction in a new area the following school term. These programs will require the expenditures of a large sum of money for salaries, instruc- tional materials, and supplies. In order to institute a summer school program, the city system needs to know whether or not pupil attendance would jusUfy the time and expense involved. Pupils will be required to pur- chase workbooks, paper, pen- cils, and other work materials; otherwise, there is no enroll= ment fee. The tentative summer term is from June 8 - July 17, 1970, with approximately four hours of instruction each morning. Friday, June 5, will be regis- tration day for summer school. A definite time will be set later. Any eligible students, who are interested in participating in any one of the three programs that have not been contacted through the school, Should con- tact the superintendent's office in person or call 8-1811 no later than the first week in May.
