Summer School Program

You are here

The 2017 Summer School Handbook is now available. The Summer School Application for the 2016-17 summer session is also available to Local Education Agencies (LEA) on Core Data Screen 24A. Definitions and instructions for completing the application are available in the neighboring "Quick Links" box.  The Summer School application is due no later than May 1, 2017, and serves as notice that your LEA intends to offer summer programming.  

Final Approval:  In addition, LEAs are required to submit a Summer School Review Checklist and Final Approval Form  due by Aug. 15, 2017.  Once completed by the summer school director and signed by the superintendent (or LEA representative), the form should be faxed to 573-522-1759, scanned/emailed to desesummerschool@dese.mo.gov or mailed to:

Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
Office of Quality Schools - School Improvement
PO Box 480
Jefferson City, MO 65102-0480


All LEAs that offer summer school programming must provide information specific to their program as part of the MOSIS June Summer Course Assignment file. Although this data submission is due on June 30, 2017, LEAs are encouraged to submit the file prior to the start of summer school.

The summer school attendance and membership data will be reported in the August MOSIS cycle. Please contact the School Finance Section at 573-751-0357 with any questions regarding the use of summer school average daily attendance in the Basic Formula, Proposition C and Fair Share payment calculations.​
