    The Raytown C-2 School District provides a summer program for every student free of charge. This program is designed to give all students a “Smart Start” to the fall semester. Smart Start is a fun, interactive, educational program for students entering kindergarten through 12th grade in the fall of 2020. The program is designed to help students maintain the skills they acquired during the regular school year and help them obtain new skills for the following school year. In addition to mathematics, communication arts, and either science or social studies, students K-8 will engage in a variety of exploratory courses. Students who will be enrolled in grades 9-12 can earn first time credit, recover credit, or learn more about a particular topic during the summer. For most courses, high school students can earn a ½ unit of credit for successfully passing, and their course grade contributes to their overall high school GPA.


    Two elementary attendance areas will attend one elementary:

    • Eastwood Hills will host students from Blue Ridge and Eastwood (8:30-3:35)
    • Fleetridge will host students from Laurel Hills and Fleetridge (9:05-4:10)

    Enrolling in the Correct Smart Start Grade Level
    Students should enroll in the grade level they will be entering in the fall of 2020. For example, a child eligible for kindergarten in the fall will enroll in Smart Start Kindergarten.  A current 3rd-grade student will enroll in Smart Start 4th Grade.

    Parents of incoming Kindergarten students must attend Kindergarten enrollment on March 2nd through 6th at the Raytown Schools Education and Conference Center. Parents who are unable to attend Kindergarten enrollment will need to contact Residency at 268-7035.
