This summer we’re offering four opportunities to earn elective credits at the D2 Center. If you’re in need of electives, this is a great way to get caught up! Class sizes are small and students get one-on-one attention from our amazing staff of caring, Nebraska-certified teachers. *Please call 402-502-8534 to enroll.*
Careers and Community Engagement: By appointment only
What does it take to get and keep a job? Students will:
— Learn job and career skills.
— Explore and select career options, identify educational and training pathways, create a resume, and develop soft skills needed to be successful in a career.
— Participate in field trips and career experiences in the community.
Call the D2 Center at 402-502-8534 for more information or to enroll.
Math Elective Credit: Math Lab open in June every Monday and Wednesday 1 – 5 p.m.
Students master the fundamentals of mathematics and beyond by using Khan Academy (online) in a math computer lab setting; a diagnostic test at the beginning of the class allows teachers to differentiate instruction, build on individual math skills, and provide 1:1 assistance.
Students who attend regularly and are approved by the teacher may complete up to a third of the hours online outside the classroom.
