Cumberland County Schools Invites Students to RISE Up and Keep Learning this Summer

As part of Cumberland County Schools' (CCS) Great Comeback, the district is launching CCS RISE 2021, a summer learning program for students in grades K12.

Designed to address Readiness, Improvement, Success and Empowerment, all CCS RISE 2021 programs will be engaging and standards-based, helping students stay on track academically.

The programming includes Academic Intervention, which is by 'invitation only' for students in kindergarten through 12th grade and can be taken in person or virtually. Also, there is Acceleration for All, which is a virtual option open to all students.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused devastating effects to our local community and the world, but all is not lost,” said Dr. Stacey Wilson-Norman, chief academic officer for CCS. “Now is the time for our great comeback. We are reaffirming The Cumberland Commitment: Strategic Plan 2024 and are dedicating significant resources to support students’ academic acceleration. We hope all students will join us this summer as we rise up together.”
