TULSA, Okla. — Summer school starts next month for Tulsa Public Schools, and this year it's going online, but there are some changes being made because of the nations pandemic.
TPS gave away 21,000 laptops to students last month.
The district hopes they'll keep students engaged and learning this summer.
Superintendent Deborah Gist says TPS wants to make sure children at home have access to the resources they need.
The summer academy will run from June 22 through July 17, along with distance learning for 3rd graders that are eligible, and for students from the ninth to the eleventh grade that need to recover credits.
Virtual senior boot camp from June 1 through July 17 for high school seniors wanting to complete graduation requirements.
Self guided virtual learning camps will also be provided for those in need.
Tulsa Public School says those who plan on returning to the district for the year 2020-2021 will be able to keep their laptops during the summer months.
