Ozaukee Press Staff

Summer school attendance in the Northern Ozaukee School District jumped 26% this year to 416 children, with nearly a quarter of those attending through the district’s online charter school.

District Supt. Dave Karrels credited an array of class offerings and the work of the district staff for the summer school’s increased popularity.

“Summer School Principal Steve Akin and our teachers have done a great job of providing a wide variety of course options for our students to make our courses fun and engaging,” Karrels said.

Course offerings included strength and agility and advanced-placement courses.

Of the 416 participants, 98 enrolled in online courses through the Wisconsin Virtual School.

The increased summer enrollment benefits the district financially as it is factored in the coming school year’s funding formula, Karrels said.

“It’s awesome to see the growth in enrollment and the excitement for our summer school programming at NOSD,” Karrels said.
