As soon as one summer ends, it's time to start planning for the next one! The new Summer Starts in September: Comprehensive Planning Guide for Summer Learning Programs includes 200 pages of research-based strategies, program examples, and tools that summer program staff, leaders, and trainers can use to develop an intentional, high-impact program.
The guide is brought to life by 80 summer learning quality indicators, developed and tested through years of partnership with summer learning programs, researchers, and trainers. Together, these indicators make up the National Summer Learning Association's Comprehensive Assessment of Summer Programs (CASP).
See a sample of Summer Starts in September and samples of the TRAIN, ASSESS AND REFLECT Editions.
The TRAIN, ASSESS, AND REFLECT Editions are electronic companion guides to the Summer Starts in September comprehensive program planning guide.
- The TRAIN companion guide will help develop understanding and ownership of summer learning program quality goals and strategies among your staff;
- The ASSESS guide will help you look for evidence of quality improvement during your summer learning program; and
- The REFLECT guide will support you as you review program data and debrief with key stakeholders of your summer learning program.
Allow 5 to 10 business days for delivery of the planning guide. The companion guides can be downloaded immediately.
