ABOUT SUMMER SCHOOL

The Los Angeles Unified School District Beyond the Bell Branch is partnering with dozens of organizations throughout the city to provide eligible students with fun and enriching field trip opportunities during the LAUSD Summer School Program. Through the Extended Learning Opportunity Summer (ELOS) program every participating student will attend a field trip with his summer school class. Summer school teachers will be spending part of the instructional day on content related to the field trip location assigned to their students through reading supplemental materials, developing projects, and completing pre and post visit activities. Even if your child is not attending one of the Beyond the Bell ELOS eligible schools, you and your family can still explore and learn on your own this summer by visiting museums, aquariums, zoos, nature and science centers. Visit our website and find educational resources and supplemental reading materials to enhance your child’s learning experience.
