Over the summer, we supported K-12 students in the Boulder Valley School District who needed to catch up on unfinished learning. Our investments supported elementary and middle school students whose skill levels in core classes had fallen below grade level as well as high school students who needed credit recovery.
Elementary and middle school students
We invested $75,000 in summer learning by extending the school day and offering free after school care to support students who would otherwise be unable to attend:
- 1264 students attended a half-day of summer learning four days per week for six weeks
- 161 BVSD students enrolled in free after school care across four sites
- Students received meals, snacks and supply materials for activities for each day of care
High school students
We funded free credit recovery that reached every BVSD high school. A total of 1272 students enrolled in BVSD Online over the summer:
- 48 middle school students and 1224 high school students took online courses
- 560 high school students enrolled in BVSD Online only for credit recovery
- 52 high school students enrolled only for full semester credit recovery
- Students taking math, science, and world language courses saw the highest success rates
We are committed to ensuring the disruptions to learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic don’t result in long-term learning gaps for our students. Impact on Education remains focused on supplemental learning opportunities and initiatives that contribute to student success. We will continue to invest throughout this 21-22 school year and beyond in targeted ways that support the students who are making up ground and ensuring that we provide additional instruction to those who need it most.
