After four successful years of partnering to make the Tackle Summer Slide (TSS) program possible, Dallas Afterschool is preparing for yet another successful year. And, thanks to some additional funding, we are expanding our summer literacy efforts to impact even more students!
Over 1,500 more students will now have the opportunity to increase literacy skills this summer, instead of experiencing the typical two months of learning loss. This will more than double the number of students served!
Over the past two years, about 1,000 students were collectively impacted through TSS. Out of these, 70% did not experience summer learning loss. Even better,
over 50% of students gained two months of literacy! With a track record like this, we can't wait to share our results at the end of the summer.
