Summer assignments allow the student to focus on course material without having a full course schedule. The summer assignment allows students to get a head start on course work and allows you to experience the depth and breadth of the type of course work you will experience once the course officially starts in the fall.
Available summer assignments are located by pointing your Web browser to https://www.staffordschools.net/Page/21686. All available summer assignments will be accessible no later than Friday, June 15, 2018.
