Summer Learning in Boston

twitterBoston’s unified approach to summer learning kicked into high gear this week across 67 sites. From Thompson Island to the Blue Hills, each site offers a different mix of time, location, and enrichment to close achievement and opportunity gaps for Boston Public School students who need it the most.

Shared goals and measures drive Boston’s summer learning system. Staff members from all 67 sites participated in joint year-round planning focused specifically on program quality and student skill development. Common evaluation tools will allow this community of practitioners to pursue continuous improvement together.

Eighteen sites enter their 5th year as part of the Summer Learning Project and continue to feature Boston Public School teachers and community non-profit staff co-developing and co-delivering summer learning experiences. An additional 49 summer sites, featuring various organizations and program models, are consistently focused on pursuing whole-child and program quality outcomes.
