The Dubuque Community School District will offer a Summer Academy for students enrolled in the district in Grades 1 and 2 during the 2016/17 school year. Enrollment is by invitation only and is offered to students who have been designated as persistently at risk in reading progress based on their early literacy scores.

The Summer Academy is a FREE six-week learning experience designed to give students a reading-focused morning combined with amazing afternoon enrichment.
