Summer School is in full swing and students like Donnell are enjoying the benefits! “The Covid situation had me playing catch up and teachers are taking time out of their lives to help us with our school work in the summer.” District 186 has close to 630 students enrolled in our high school summer program this year. The goal is to help students get back on track or ahead of schedule before the school year starts in late August.
