Whether you’re on winter break this week, or simply daydreaming about warmer weather, now is actually a great time to think about summer—summer learning that is!
Research tells us that summer program leaders who commit to a program in the fall and begin planning in January run smoother programs with fewer disruptions. But it’s already February, you ask? Is that too late? The short answer is no. And we’re here to help.
All this week, we’re sharing tools and resources to assist you in developing a high-quality summer learning program that can lead to measurable benefits in math, reading, and social and emotional learning. These successful outcomes help level the playing field for kids from low-income communities who often lose ground over the summer. Our resources are drawn from the work of five urban school districts and aligned with research from RAND.
Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Instagram, where each day we’ll be highlighting tools and resources from our Summer Learning Toolkit. Or dive right into the full toolkit here. It’s a good place to begin.
And for you early planners, now is a great time to start ramping up. Summer will be here before we know it!
