KINGSPORT — It's almost summer of 2014, but summer programs in Kingsport City Schools are not your father's or mother's summer school.

KCS is offering a variety of summer programs, ranging from a descendant of the old-school summer school to academic enhancement programs and free lunch and breakfast programs to all comers younger than 18.

Among the camps, activities and learning opportunities in elementary, middle and high schools, summer programs include academic programs.

In elementary from June 3 through July 3, students with a documented need are invited to academic programs, while some schools have summer library programs, too.

Middle schools have a similar program running June 3-20, based on needs, as well as the Jump Start program at Robinson and Sevier middle schools June 2-4 at both schools and June 9-11 at Robinson and June 16-18 at Sevier, for rising sixth-graders to help them transition to middle school.

At the high school, courses from June 3 through July 11 facilitate credit recovery for students in the core math and English subject areas.

Those programs are need based and include online labs as well as teachers, Assistant Superintendent Dory Creech said.
