Prevent Summer Slide 

Summer learning loss, also known as summer slide, is a significant contributor to the achievement gap. Studies show children from under-resourced communities lose two months or more of reading and math skills each summer. The cumulative effect is devastating. By the end of fifth grade, these children are nearly three grade equivalents behind their more affluent peers in reading, setting off a snowball effect that is nearly impossible to reverse.
