O’FALLON – For years, an extended summer school program has not been been a reality at OTHS. This summer, the district decided that would change, and instituted the program, which helps special needs youth at OTHS develop different life skills when school is not normally in session.
The extended summer school program runs for four weeks, starting in mid-June and ending in the middle of July. Consisting of four-hour school days, many involved in the program were eager to speak about the program and it’s success.
