Welcome to the Summer Education Academy

  • Summer School Registration/Classes:
    Currently, we have halted registration for all district summer school classes, both in-person and online.

    • For students who registered prior to March 6, 2019, for Tempe Online summer classes, these will begin on March 27th as scheduled, and their teachers will reach out to them about starting their classes in the next week. 
    • For all other students, we are working to determine an updated plan for summer education and will communicate this to all students and parents along with updated registration dates and procedures in the next few weeks.
    • Students who have already registered for in-person summer classes will be contacted directly as soon as a new plan is in place.
    • Please check back here for the District’s summer education options which will be updated regularly.
