Reducing Summer Slide

BriefsGirlReading

This summer, the doors at some Toledo Public elementary and high schools will stay open for programs that offer academic enrichment. As part of the district’s push to end “summer slide,” the decrease in academic stimulation over break, they continue mov- ing toward achieving an effective summer program with the help of several community agencies. Programs offered will include kindergarten “jump start,” where entering students will have two weeks to get comfortable in the school environment. They are partnering with the United Way of Greater Toledo, Boys and Girls Clubs, Toledo-Lucas County Library system and YMCA/JCC of Greater Toledo. Good things are happening in Toledo’s education system!
