Stone Mountain, GA — The DeKalb County school district has announced a new summer learning program to help students who may have fallen behind due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The program was discussed at this month’s School Board meeting. In her most recent email to the community, Superintendent Cheryl Watson Harris said, “I’m happy to announce that the District will offer a new learning program for students this summer.”
“The MOSAIC Summer Learning Program provides additional learning opportunities to address academic regression and learning loss,” the superintendent wrote. “MOSAIC programs include literacy and mathematics foundation skills, language acquisition, credit recovery or acceleration, STEM/STEAM, summer bridge and enrichment camps. The curricula is designed for meaningful learning experiences in June and July 2021 and to deliver students with intentional, targeted support to address learning gaps.
“The programs are no cost, however, if a high school student takes a course through Georgia Virtual School or other accredited entity, there are fees per course. The district encourages all students to take advantage of the program designed for their enrichment.”
She said more details will be announced at a later date.
