ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Dougherty County School System is expanding their summer school program and for the first time all of the classes are free.

The school systems plans to offer the traditional CRCT Boot Camp and Credit and Acceleration classes for students who need help with a particular subject.

There's also a new class to prepare students for high school. Ninth grade students can take the Ninth Grade Bridge class from June 8th through the 19th to prepare for the workload of high school. Stimulus money is paying for the new class along with fees traditional charged to high school students.

"In the past we've offered free summer school for elementary and middle school grades, but this year we also have funding to supply some summer school work and academic remedial work for some high school students as well," said R.D.Harter, DCSS Public Information Officer.

School officials say students who had trouble with their CRCT scores will be notified of the additional classes offered this summer. Other students in need of summer help should contact their schools now to make arrangements for summer school.
