Summer School Basics:
Summer schools are available at our school. While their basic purpose is to continue offering quality programming for the Jiaxing community, they will also serve to support academic programs such as ESOL (i.e. conditional enrollments and ongoing support for improving English language proficiency), music, sport, and university or IB support. Summer schools should generate interest for mission-appropriate families to keep or enroll their students at PKUES for the following school year.
All summer school programs should include the following as basic components:
· Fun Camp
· English as a Second Language Camp
Additionally, PKUES considers additional programs that meet the above objectives. Examples include:
· IB Intensive Preparation Programs
· Chinese Language and Culture Camp
· Summer Jobs Programs
· Music Camp
· Sports Camp
· Technology Camp
The Principals are responsible for ensuring the successful launch and completion of summer school. Principals should ensure that a Summer Camp Coordinator is appointed for camp supervision, promotion, and management. As the size of each camp may vary, camp coordinators will need to include themselves in the daily operations of camps, until the size of the camp justifies a full time position.
Nurse on-site required, certified lifeguard required for pool use. Staffing begins with 1 Coordinator, then 1 Counselor for each additional program, 10:1 ratio adult to student. Junior counselors and assistants added based on enrollment and program needs.
