    Summer Opportunity Staff

    Westside’s Summer Opportunity Staff pauses to catch their breath during a rigorous inter-session focus on providing off-season opportunities to improve student academic achievement.  Students are provided with individualized classes for credit repair, credit & attendance recovery, and preparation for improving scores on Georgia Milestones tests.  Thanks to this group of dedicated educational professionals and critical support staff who take time from their “summer break” to ensure that Westside’s students get extra attention and support to get on track, stay on track, and achieve academic success!
