Virtual Learning Opportunities This Summer

Georgia Department of Education announces
2016 summer reading resources, events
When students don’t read during the summer months, they lose educational ground: research shows that students can lose up to three months of reading ability over the summer. This phenomenon – known as summer loss – can lower achievement potential and widen the achievement gap. 
Fortunately, this summer reading loss is preventable. Research shows that children who read during the summer don’t suffer the same losses, and may even show some growth in their reading ability. 
To ensure students and families have the support they need to make literacy a priority this summer, the Georgia Department of Education is working to get books in the hands of as many students as possible, through summer reading events, resources, and the donation of more than 100,000 books.
