By the time students get to high school, the learning loss caused by the summer slide can create a performance gap of 2-5 years. But simply practicing some skills will keep your student sharp heading into next year. #pcssdproud #equityandexcellence

The summer slide is real and students can lose more than 2.5 months of math skills, 2 months of reading skills, and multiple grade levels of abilities without putting what they have learned this list year to practice. #pcssdproud #equityandexcellence
