Eligibility for Kids on Course University
Students attend Kids on Course University by invitation only from their school of enrollment. Students must attend a school that’s participating in KCU. Currently 16 elementary schools in the Cedar Rapids Community School District are part of Kids on Course University for the summer of 2017. Space is limited and invitations are reserved for students who need extra support in reading, but also demonstrate a commitment to summer camp attendance. The program must have a balanced number of students between sites and grades, so not all students who qualify based on reading need are invited. Funding for the program is closely tied to attendance so students must be able to attend all seven weeks of the program.
