On January 22, 2021, the Tennessee General Assembly enacted the Tennessee Learning Loss Remediation and Student Acceleration Act (SB 7002/HB 7004) to address the learning loss of students due to COVID-19 related school closures. Through this new law, all school districts in Tennessee will be required to offer learning loss remediation summer programs for students in grades K-8, starting in summer 2021.
Lincoln County Schools will be offering a Summer Learning Camp for students that are rising 1st-5th graders and a Summer Bridge Camp for rising 6th-8th graders. The summer camps will provide daily instruction in reading/language arts and mathematics plus activities in science/technology/the arts/physical education. Services include breakfast, lunch and transportation. The camps will run 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. four days per week. The state has set criteria for those eligible for the program. Additional information will be provided by the school their child attends based on academic eligibility.
