Hi Judya,
If social studies is the issue it may also have something to do with your son's reading comprehension skills. That said, I believe your best bet for finding what type of classes may be available for him over the summer would be to contact the schools District Office and see what may be available for the entire district. Tell the correct dept at your district what your issue is and see if they can lead you to a resolution. Good luck on your journey. Remember "the squeaky wheel gets the oil".
