The curriculum for these days is designed by expert teachers within CCSD and is centered on themes that make Zoom Summer Academy (or, at the secondary level, Zoom University) an exciting, educational and memorable experience for the students at Zoom Schools.
Summer Food Service Programs
Each year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture partners with local organizations like the Clark County School District to provide free meals to students when school is out for the summer. Any student under the age of 18 may eat at hosted sites at no cost to the family. Here is a list of sites that will be providing lunches during the summer. If there are questions about specific sites, please call the number of the site.
