Metro Nashville Public Schools will host the district's month-long summer learning program online as a result of COVID-19, the school district announced May 21.

Enrichment opportunities will be available to students in grades K-12 beginning June 1. As part of the program, which runs through June 26, MNPS teachers will lead 1,300 learning sessions on nearly 120 subjects, according to the district.


The free classes are voluntary and will only be available for the day they are listed. Families and students can access programming on the district’s website.

In addition to the district's summer learning program, MNPS will offer online credit recovery opportunities to students in grades 9-12. The district urges students interested in enrolling in the credit recovery program to contact their assigned school counselors by June 1, according to a news release.

While all summer programing will be offered online, the district has not yet announced plans for the 2020-21 academic year.
