The Hacienda La Puente Unified School District has been forced to cut summer school for elementary and intermediate students because of the budget deficit.
The district usually offers 15 days of summer school, three hours a day to help students catch up on their classwork. But it had to eliminate the classes because the state has cut funding.
“We put these students in small groups the last three or four weeks of school to beef up their studies,” explained Bonnie Wilson, Executive Director of Leadership for the district.
Summer classes will begin soon at the high school level.
