• Upcoming 9th Graders --

    KHS Students will have the opportunity to take online credit enhancement classes over the summer in order to gain credits towards graduation. We will be offering two sessions of virtual summer school, one in June and one in July. These classes are for enhancement and are at no cost. Students are able to take a maximum of two virtual classes in June, and maximum of two virtual classes in July. All summer school courses count as an official grade and will be added to your student’s KHS transcript.

    Filling out the google form below will solidify your student’s enrollment in a summer school credit enhancement course.

    Virtual summer school enhancement classes are optional and not required.

    Students can choose virtual Pioneer eLearning Academy (PeLA) classes which are taught by a KHS teacher, on Schoology, and are completely asynchronous. Personal Finance, Health, and Lifetime Fitness are the only three PeLA courses offered over the summer and are only offered in June. Please note, Personal Finance is not recommended for incoming 9th graders.

    Launch classes are available in June and July and are also online and asynchronous, but taught by a teacher from Springfield Public Schools. There are an array of summer courses available on Launch. For more information about the courses, please visit: https://fueledbylaunch.com/summer/

    Please note that students can choose to take PeLA classes in June OR Launch classes in June but a student cannot enroll in classes through both programs during the month of June. In July, only Launch classes are offered.

    PeLA June Session Dates: May 30-June 27
    Launch June Session Dates: June 5-June 30
    Launch July Session Dates: July 5-July 31
