The announcement is from Sandi Whiton, academic dean and summer school administrator at West Seattle High School, but she stresses that ALL high-school students in West Seattle – not just WSHS – are eligible:

West Seattle High School has received a $92,000 grant to fund credit recovery at summer school for high school students in West Seattle for 2 years, for a total of $184,000. This was a competitive grant and is funded by the City of Seattle’s Department of Education and Early Learning, so we’re proud to have been awarded it to help all the high school students in our area. Historically, students have had to travel to either Cleveland or Roosevelt to access credit recovery, so this is a wonderful thing for all West Seattle students, regardless of their home high school.

Our goals are to help the students of West Seattle catch up on their credits, improve their GPAs through credit replacement, and to create a fresh start for themselves by getting caught up on their grades and mastering the academic skills they will need to finish high school strong and perform well in college and beyond. It’s only for 3 ½ weeks, so all you have to do is commit to that, come, and learn! You’ll still have all of August free to enjoy the rest of your summer, and you’ll start next year ON TIME to graduate!

I wrote the article/information below to share with all of West Seattle. I’m super proud to have gotten this grant for ALL West Seattle students! Please post it if you can. Thanks so much! Sandi Whiton, Academic Dean and Summer School Administrator, West Seattle High School.
