J-Term is a proposed four-week session held between spring and summer that will allow 6-12 grade students to complete or take condensed course(s) that didn't fit into their schedule, participate in internship opportunities, build proficiency in key skill areas and get ahead or stay on track for graduation.
Students taking J-Term classes have the benefits of small class sizes, more interaction with teachers and the ability to complete a course(s) in a shorter time with fewer distractions. In condensed classes students will be able to explore a variety of subjects, discover new interests, and test their creativity through classes held at various school campuses across the district.
Rufus King and Ronald Reagan high schools will pilot J-Term programs for recovery and acceleration in June 2017. J-term for all middle and high schools will launch in June 2018.
