• IB Summer Assignments

    New for Summer 2019:  Mandatory summer assignments will not be made for the same reasons that our district does not support homework during school breaks.  It is the belief of Forsyth County Schools that many learning opportunities beyond academics are available through summer experiences including family travel, summer camps, independent learning by following personal interests/passions, part time jobs, apprenticeships, and internships.  Any assignments designed for summer completion will be considered teacher suggestions and will be optional for students.  Completed assignments will not be considered for a grade.  However, Forsyth County Schools believes in the value of effective written feedback designed to promote student growth and increased achievement.  Therefore, while completed assignments will not receive a numerical grade, students can expect to receive written commentary from their teachers.

    Make sure you contact your teacher (see below, their email contact is in the staff directory) for a list of recommended readings over the summer of 2019 and are ready when you return to school in August.
