BAKERSFIELD - In the quest to inspire our students to academic excellence, the Bakersfield City School District extended summer learning opportunities to every child in the District.
Recent studies have shown that students can fall behind their peers by up to three years between kindergarten and fifth grade due to summer breaks in learning. This phenomenon, known as "Summer Learning Loss", affects all students but impacts low income students the most.
BCSD is addressing this issue for all students by offering 12 Summer Learning Centers strategically located throughout the District. Each Summer Learning Center provides students access to computers, a library, as well as reading and math activities with the assistance of teachers.
New to the Learning Centers this year is a unique individualized computer program customized to meet each child's needs. Students will experience acceleration in reading through fun computer-based activities that are highly engaging for all children.
There is nothing more important to a child's future than a well-rounded education. It is critical that our children do not lose ground academically over the summer.
