Dallas ISD Summer Learning


Studies show that students can lose up to a full month of instructional growth by not engaging in active learning over the summer.

In an effort to help our students be as successful as possible, Dallas ISD has partnered with the Dallas City of Learning and Big Thought to create summer learning programs that enrich and reinforce learning that has taken place over the previous school year while preparing students for the year ahead.

Dallas ISD students will have the opportunity to regain credit for promotion or prepare for testing in the Summer Readiness, SSI and Credit Recovery summer school settings or engage in full-day and half-day tuition-free enrichment camps for K-5 and/or 6-8 students in Dallas ISD.

Most of our Summer Learning Camps are filled and no longer enrolling students.  However, we currently have spots available for two of our DISD Summer Camps, see below:
