Digital Summer Academic Support
On the Student Portal, go to Additional Resources to find a link for Digital Summer Support.
Once on the Digital Summer Support eCLASS page, students and families will find information on the two digital platforms available to support learning over the summer.
Students will be able to launch their learning, using one of these platforms:
• Amplify offers practice in reading;
• iReady supports mathematics; and
Students do not need to complete work in both platforms. Each platform will provide K–8 students with targeted learning opportunities in reading and/or mathematics, using the student’s answers to determine areas in which they need more help.
These digital tools are a great way to keep students connected and learning at their own pace during the summer!

Carnegie Credit for 8th Graders
This year several our 8th graders were enrolled in various high school courses for which they have the option to accept Carnegie Credit. If your student was enrolled in a high school course this year, they have the option to accept high school credit for those courses, which will then be added to their high school transcript.
Attached you will find directions to electronically document your decision through the Parent Portal.
For your child to receive credit, you must mark the decision through the Parent Portal. Please complete this as soon as possible.
Eligibility recommendations are listed below. Please feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher or the 8th grade assistant principal with any questions you may have.
