Oregon School Services Agency (OSSA) Struggling to Provide Summer School
The Oregon School Services Agency (OSSA) is struggling to provide summer school for children and families across the state. Oregon and Oregon State University were the first to provide summer school to students on January 5th. The State Board of Education’s budget for the next fiscal year will be released within the next two weeks. It’s looking to have a portion of the funding come from the general fund to give it more of a priority to providing summer school in the area.
The state is currently in the process of working with state schools and districts to determine summer school opportunities and curriculum. OSSA is seeking input from staff as the state attempts to determine the best summer school option for K-12 students and families.
“Oregon is on the leading edge in providing summer school for students with an emphasis on math and science,” said OSSA Director of Communications Kelly Shaughnessy. “We are committed to provide our citizens the freedom and opportunity to achieve on their own terms so that our children will never be stuck in a school system in which they are not accepted due to their ability.
Oregon’s State Board of Education is responsible for setting the curriculum in schools across the state. The curriculum should give every child an opportunity to be a critical thinker, creative and curious and have an active learning experience. In addition, there are many opportunities that Oregon students and families have.
Oregon State is one of two institutions who offer summer school programs in science and math. It offers high school students and college students a special focus in science and math for summer school. The other institution is the University of Oregon where K-12 students can take a summer day camp that begins in August or a summer school course in math.
In addition to summer school, the Oregon OREU program is available for children in grades 1-6 for the academic winter.

Dan Gannon and the Summer Bridge Program at Bronx High School.
Article Title: Dan Gannon and the Summer Bridge Program at Bronx High School | Programming.
When I visited New York City this summer for a vacation, I got the summer bridge program at Bronx High School of Science, a program that’s run by the New York City Department of Education. I can’t say any more about the program for lack of space, but I can report that it was a great and creative experience for a 14-year-old girl.
Dan’s mother, Jennifer Gannon, a volunteer at Bronx High School of Science, is a writer, photographer, and an elementary school teacher. Dan’s older sister, Elizabeth, is a fifth-grader at Bronx High School of Science, who is now a student at George Washington.
Dan, who turned 14 in the program, is a member of the Future Engineering Club at Bronx High School of Science, just like his sister. Their mother is also an elementary school teacher. Dan is a math and history geek, while his sister is creative, artistic, and a leader in the science club and other school activities.
Their parents are both working class, single parents, and have found their roles to fulfill in supporting Dan and his sister. Dan, who has been in summer school three times, has been an honors student, including a semester abroad. He is also a good student with a strong academic record.
Dan and his mother both volunteer at Bronx High School of Science, where the summer bridge program was based. The program is run by a volunteer principal, and they are both involved with the organization.
Dan told me that he was very excited about going to summer school, and he loved the program. He and his father, who is a public school teacher, are both working for the school for the summer. This time, his father was part of the program. For some students, it was a long and sometimes difficult trip, since the program is not an academic school in the sense of the Bronx High School of Science. But for Dan, who was a bright student in a class with other students who had the same interests, it was a very positive experience.
Dan was a member of the Future Engineering Club at Bronx High School of Science, just like Elizabeth, who is now attending George Washington.

The teacher’s perspective of the Bronx High School
I am teaching at the Bronx High School for almost eight years now. I have taught there in the past because I have a special interest in the subject matter of the school and because it is among the more competitive schools to work at.
Like all schools in the Bronx, they have a well-established and well-respected curriculum for a diverse student body. Teachers are required to have an undergraduate degree and to teach to a state-recognized set of standards. I have an undergraduate degree, so this is by no means unusual.
I have been teaching for all of four years. The only differences I have heard about are in my classes, and they can all be listed as that. I don’t have any complaints about the curriculum, or the teachers.
The one complaint I have heard in my classes is the students. My first grade students are usually not the best or the brightest. The teachers work hard to bring out the best qualities in the students and I am proud of their efforts but I also see students in our lower grades that I am unable to help, because there are not enough teachers. It is frustrating, to say the least.
One of my most memorable classes has been my first and second grade students. I have taught them for a total of 15 years and they have always been my best. I love the students, but I also am very proud of the teachers they have.
Some students have very gifted or very good talents that they have not shown in their higher grades. But they have not been able to demonstrate them in elementary and middle school.
When I first started teaching, I had very little confidence in my ability to help students who were having trouble. Now, years later, when I’m ready in the morning, I know that I have the tools to help students. And I am able to do it.
I think that the students who are being successful are the ones who are willing to put in the work. They work hard, they want to do well, they get frustrated, they try and try again.
