Bishop Ward will hold one summer school session for students in need of credit recovery. All classes will be online. Families will receive letters the first week of May indicating if summer school is anticipated or required. Be sure to check your student’s grades on a regular basis. After final grades are posted, a second letter will be mailed to those students whose status changed from anticipated to required.
Dates: June 1 - June 30
