Final Week and Finals Time
Good afternoon, Blackhawks! The end of the year is fully upon as we head into the FINAL week of the 2022/2023 school year. At this point, your coursework should be complete, with only your final assessments to complete. Please allow time for these assessments to be opened if that is required. Read on for important details on the timeline of grades, potential additional instructor communications, and OCC Jumpstart Information. It's the home stretch. We can do it! As always, contact the office with any questions or concerns.

2023 Summer School Information
A Note from Edmentum/EdOptions Academy Regarding Instructors:
For Graduated Seniors Not Yet Enrolled in College - OCC Jumpstart Program
The new, Jump Start Program at Oakland Community College lets students take two intensive college skill courses to enhance their academic performance, increase self-confidence, and successfully transition to college.
This opportunity is open to all high school graduates who have not yet started college and is free to Oakland county residents who have earned a high school diploma and have not previously attended college classes.
OCC's "Jump Start Program" will be taking place this summer.
The State is providing grant funding to provide coursework, transportation, food and Chromebooks to participants. We will also be offering a $300 stipend, and for students who enroll in 9 credits at OCC in the fall 2023 semester.
This is a great opportunity!
To learn about the schedule and next steps, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Summer Technology Policy
Please see the following note from Mr. Bezak, head of the technology department here at Brandon School District:
As we approach the end of the academic year, we would like to inform you that the Chromebooks assigned to your students will remain with them over the summer break, as we did last year. We understand that many families rely on these devices for continued learning and to stay connected with their teachers and classmates. Therefore, it is important for students to keep their devices with them during the break.
We acknowledge that some families may have concerns about screen time during the summer months. To address these concerns, we offer a remote lock feature that can disable the Chromebook for the summer break. If you would like to use this feature, please contact us, and we will be happy to assist you.
Please note that if your child is transitioning out of the Brandon School District, we request that you return the issued Chromebook and charger to your respective school's front office.
Thank you for your continued support of our technology program. We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer break.
IT Director, Brandon School District

Reminder of Expectations
- Expect your student to work for roughly 45-60 minutes per day, per course
- By now, you should have been reached out to by a counselor regarding your course progress. These will happen once a week. It is extremely important that you respond to communication. Please note that the student needs to respond and be in communication, not just the parent(s).
- Your main point of contact for content specific questions is your course instructor. If you need help doing so, don't hesitate to reach out to us at 248-627-1820.
