At-Risk (incl. Dropout Prevention)
Scheduling/School Calendar--Extended Day Programs

Summer learning programs ranging from remedial instruction for failing pupils to enrichment courses for those at grade level are an increasingly popular strategy for school districts struggling to improve student achievement.

This Issue Site looks at the scope and magnitude of the summer school boom; the financial and logistical problems that extending the school year poses for districts, particularly large urban districts; and the latest research findings on the design, use and potential benefits of summer learning programs. It also includes a roundup of recent state-level summer school initiatives.
