Every Tuesday and Thursday throughout the summer we'll be sharing videos from teachers who won the Tips to Beat the Summer Slide Video Contest. The contest, hosted by the CSO, is to help parents keep the learning alive in the summer months and reduce the summer slide. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the average student will lose anywhere from one to three months of learning over the summer. Superintendent Kathy Mears commented, “I think families will appreciate these videos. During the summer, it can be difficult to keep children entertained and we want to provide quality ideas that our families will find beneficial. We have a variety of topics that will be covered by the winning submissions. We have also created some with tips in Spanish to be inclusive of all our families."
