Summer Learning: Promising Practices and Innovation Strategies Webinar
Over the summer many young people and their families lose access to critical supports that keep them safe, healthy, and engaged in learning. The summer “opportunity gap” contributes to gaps in achievement that persist and widen over time, particularly for low-income students. On May 24, 2016 and June 2, 2016, the National Center on Afterschool and Summer Enrichment hosted the "Summer Learning: Promising Practices and Innovation Strategies" webinar to share information about the critical issues related to summer learning for the school-age care community.
