I do not know whether we will be able to offer the Summer Enrichment classes for the upcoming year. However, we do have Beginning and Intermediate Guitar, so if your 6th grader is a novice, Beginning Guitar would be appropriate.
Samuel Salazar

Will math tutors be available to students who need extra help?
Robin Ridgeway

Our electives are open to all grade levels. A list of electives is posted on our webpage. Beginning/Intermediate/Advanced classes are skill based rather than by grade level.

When will students be able to register for classes? Do classes typically fill up quickly?
Robin Ridgeway
33:02
Students will select classes during the late spring. Some classes fill up quickly, but most students receive at least one and usually two of their top three choices.
Kathy Johnson
34:04
Would students transferring from other districts know if they are allowed to go to Benton by late spring or do they register later?

what kind of transportation is available for those that where closed out of Los Coyotes?
Robin Ridgeway
35:48
Students transferring in from outside the district usually find out by May… though it can take longer depending on the volume of permits requested. Generally, we are usually able to accommodate requests from outside the district.
Robin Ridgeway
38:24
For the students who live in what was the Los Coyotes area, there are buses. However, there’s a link on the district website where you can put in your address and confirm whether transportation is available. https://locator.decisioninsite.com/?StudyID=235453
