Sulphur Springs School District will offer summer school only for its special education students, leaving the summer math and reading intervention program to be made up during the school year.

"By not doing summer school, we can increase the number of hours that can be used during the school year to provide a focused intervention program," Superintendent Robert Nolet said, later adding, "We're hopeful to try and make it up during the course of the school year."

The 19-day summer program is typically for students behind on lessons.

"Summer school has been designed for students who are having some difficulty in either reading or math," Nolet said.

The elementary school district's summer school serves about 400 students on average.

This year's summer school will only be for special-education students, as dictated by their individualized education program, Nolet said.

Sulphur Springs has always held summer school for its special education students, he said.

The last day of school for Sulphur Springs School District students is Friday.
