As we move forward through the pandemic and its impact on learning during the 2020-2021 school year, districts are reimagining their summer programs. How can they balance the need to help more students, provide more classes than usual, bridge learning gaps across skills, concepts, and sometimes courses, and address the social and emotional needs of exhausted and frustrated students and teachers? It is a lot to tackle, but it is doable. We are all walking a new path forward, and there are no right answers. There are, however, lessons to be learned from years past. Combine them with all that we’ve learned since March 2020, and some creative ideas for summer programs in 2021 emerge.
