This guide is intended to better acquaint school board members and superintendents with summer learning, and to help them establish or expand programs that result in greater learning and enrichment for the students they serve.
With the Packard Foundation’s support, a coalition of educators, policymakers, and families launched the Summer Matters campaign. Eager to build on-the-ground models of great summer programming, the stakeholders worked to create high-quality programs across the state that address local needs of children and youth.
This 3 minute video illustrates the difference between summer learning programs and remedial summer school. See how summer learning programs help students retain and build-on their achievements during the school year.
