Another highly-productive session at Central Valley Opportunity Center (CVOC) Migrant Summer School came to an end last week during an event in Merced.
Along with earning credits that will count toward their high school transcripts, students worked on cultural performances to celebrate the grand finale of the program.
Migrant students and English learners tend to fall behind in school due to missing class, bouncing around to different school districts and not understanding the curriculum. For some, CVOC Summer School is an opportunity to catch up with their peers. For others, it’s the only time they truly feel that they are a part of a learning environment.
In partnership with Merced Union High School District and Merced County Office of Education, CVOC Summer School provides an opportunity for these students with special needs to learn at their own pace from people who have gone through similar experiences.
