Close to 200 additional students enrolled in summer school classes at the beginning of the week. The Galt Joint Union High School District was anticipating about 500 students when 686 showed up, according to Superintendent Daisy Lee.
There are 19 classes being offered, including freshman and sophomore English, geometry and math enrichment. For the first time, there are also online courses.
Lee is proud of the program, especially as other nearby school districts, including Lodi Unified, have stopped offering summer school courses.
“We truly need summer school to help students catch up with coursework,” Lee said earlier this week.
