Middle School StudentsThe Raytown C-2 School District provides a summer program for every student free of charge.  This program is designed to give all students a “Smart Start” to the fall semester. Smart Start is a fun, interactive, educational program for students entering kindergarten through 12th grade in the fall of 2017.  The program is designed to help students maintain the skills they acquired during the regular school year and help them obtain new skills for the following school year. In addition to mathematics, communication arts, and either science or social studies, students K-8 will engage in a variety of exploratory courses. Students who will be enrolled in grades 9-12 can earn first time credit, recover credit, or learn more about a particular topic during the summer.  For most courses, high school students can earn a ½ unit of credit for successfully passing, and their course grade contributes to their overall high school GPA.
