Posted by: Tyler Mattingly
The National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) introduces Accelerating Achievement Through Summer Learning, a comprehensive resource for program providers, education leaders, policymakers, and funders who are making important decisions about whether and how to strengthen and expand summer learning programs as a way to accelerate student achievement.
In the report are 13 on-the-ground case studies of diverse program models, including a look at key research led by The Wallace Foundation and the RAND Corporation on what works in summer learning and an overview of supportive state policies. And while the case studies focus on specific providers, the key themes and success factors are transferable to many settings and programs.
You’ll learn more about how to use summer as a time to advance key K-12 educational priorities such as: third-grade reading proficiency, successful middle school transitions, college and career readiness, and teacher training and retention.
