That may depend on whether or not your school system even offers general summer school sessions. With budget cuts, a lot of schools have eliminated summer sessions that are not considered strictly remedial. There's also no guarantee that your child's favorite teacher would be working in a summer school program. Your child might end up with a teacher she doesn't really like, or you may be sending her to classes she really doesn't need. Maybe you can try doing some activities over the summer that are structured like school, like a day trip to a museum or book report assignments. Some students might miss the structure and social aspects of school, but they really need some downtime in order to recharge their batteries.
