School District Superintendent Gay Todd says the summer session had to be canceled because of state budget cuts. That means 600 kids won’t be attending summer classes and about two-dozen teachers will be out-of-work.  

“They would have had four weeks of additional employment and so it does hit them as well as the students who don’t get to come to school. This is a missed opportunity for our students.” 

Todd says canceling summer school will save the district about $325,000. 

Meanwhile, Natomas school district officials say budget cuts have also forced them to cancel summer classes at their elementary schools…although summer school will be in-session at their high schools. A decision on whether to keep summer classes intact at the district’s middle schools could come Thursday night. 

Taking a look at other local districts – Sacramento City, Elk Grove and San Juan all plan to offer summer school class this year.
