Summer School Registration Now Open


The Racine Unified School District is now enrolling for Summer School 2023! The program is a smart and simple choice to keep your child’s brain active and engaged in learning even when school is out. RUSD Summer School is open to any child, they do not need to attend an RUSD school. 

This year, Racine Unified has simplified scheduling for summer school students. Each child who is registered will receive math, reading and a rotation of fun, challenging and captivating enrichment courses including music, art, physical education and more. Parents simply need to sign up and pick their summer school site. The District’s extended learning department, in partnership with the city of Racine’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department, is also offering after summer school programming. Parents can sign up for this programming during the summer school registration process. 

RUSD’s educators strongly encourage all students to attend summer school. It’s both a fun and academically rigorous program that can improve students’ foundational skills, expand their problem-solving abilities, reduce summer learning loss and boost their communication, leadership and social skills. 

Summer school classes run Monday through Thursday, June 19 through July 27. Registration is open now through May 26 at rusd.org/summerschool. Anyone with questions about summer school or in need of help registering may email summer.school@rusd.org or visit one of RUSD’s Family Resource Centers located inside Knapp Elementary (2701 17th St.) and Mitchell K-8 (2701 Drexel Ave.).
