“Intersession is a time where we’ll pause course progression & address learning gaps."

SPRING 2024 INTERSESSION

  • April 1-4 is Intersession Week in Aiken County Public Schools, an opportunity made possible by the modified academic calendar implemented this year. District educators will offer intensive support to elementary, middle and high school students during Spring Intersession, as well as a limited number of slots available to students interested in  programs for academic acceleration. 

    Students have been identified for Intersession based on academic need, unit recovery, and/or attendance/time recovery and encouraged to enroll. This opportunity is being offered at no cost to identified students or their families and is designed as a way to address areas of academic need and support students’ success in a course and overall achievement in an individualized and/or small group setting.
