- Over the summer months, students can lose as much as two months of math and reading progress, according to a John Hopkins study. And, research shows that teachers often spend between 4 to 6 weeks re-teaching material that students have forgotten over the summer.
- Schools and districts across the country can help prevent the summer slide by offering summer school curriculum resources that will help re-engage students and get them excited to learn.

- The Wallace Foundation reports that only 25% of school age children attend summer programs. Worse, more than one-half of the achievement gap can be explained by unequal access to summer learning opportunities—resulting in fewer low-income youth graduating from high school or entering college. For the fortunate students attending summer school programs it’s even more critical that they have access to high quality, research-proven curriculum resources to bridge the gap and ensure back-to-school readiness.
