Summer Learning at STEC
Research shows that up to two-thirds of the achievement gap between low-income students and their higher income peers can be explained by unequal access to summer opportunities. Recognizing this issue, Boston, with the support of public and private funding, works to expand access to high quality summer learning programming. Co-managed by Boston Public Schools and Boston After School & Beyond, this approach draws on the strengths of teachers and leading program providers to provide a full-day, integrated learning experience. Summer Learning at STEC aims to prevent “summer slippage” and shares the common goal of academic progress in math and language arts, and improvement in the ACT skills.
