High quality summer learning is essential to preventing “summer learning loss” and improving students’ academic achievement and readiness to learn, and summer learning programs are changing students’ lives for the better each and every summer. Chaired by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, Summer Matters is striving to ensure that all California students have access to high quality summer learning opportunities, and that a summer filled with engaging academic, enrichment and recreational activities becomes an integral part of their educational experience. The Summer Matters campaign is a statewide coalition of school districts, educators, school boards, education leaders, mayors, legislators, nonprofits, funders, civic leaders and parents working collaboratively to create and expand access to high quality summer learning opportunities for all California students.
