  Students generally look forward to the arrival of summer and the end of the school year. Days spent outside the classroom can be fun. But, two months away from a structured learning environment can also result in what’s referred to as the “Summer Slide.” It’s a tendency to lose some of the academic progress students make over the course of the school year.

A recently announced project will bring new resources for studying science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to Geneva City Schools students. Geneva City Schools, Boys and Girls Club of Geneva, and Geneva 2020 are teaming up with a Utah-based company to provide online courses and locally-based mentoring to students in grades 3 through 8. Geneva City Schools Superintendent Trina Newton found the program appealing because it brings additional expertise to their students.
