Summer Reading for ALL

Regular and Advanced English Summer Assignments

In the York County School  Division, we believe summer reading should empower students to develop an  appreciation for reading and enable them to become lifelong readers and  learners. Beginning this year, YCSD is expanding summer reading expectations  for students entering grades 6-12 in September 2017. Every middle and high  school student is expected to engage in summer reading, and the coursework  accompanying this summer reading requirement will be based upon the students’  English class enrollment for the 2017-18 school year.

All students entering regular English in grades 6-12 will read at least one book of their  choosing this summer. In September, students will complete an activity related to their summer reading.

All students entering Advanced English classes will read the book(s) selected by each school for specific courses and complete the assigned coursework for that class.
