The Y’s Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program (SLPP): Students that consistently attended SLLP gained up to three months in reading – thus reducing summer learning loss.

● Reading scores substantially increase over the course of the program for students in first through third grades, when comparing pre- and post-test STAR scores. STAR scores also increased for fourth and fifth graders, but those changes were not statistically significant. Overall, 67 percent of participants met the goal of avoiding the summer slide by maintaining or increasing their literacy/reading skills.

● Gains in literacy are stronger for the kids who need it most. 78 percent of participants starting at or below the 20th percentile (performing below 80 percent of their peers nationwide) maintained or improved percentile rank while 67 percent of all participants maintained or improved percentile rank.

● Evidence suggests the program makes an important difference in children’s attitude and reading behaviors. Parent and caregiver survey responses reflect substantial evidence that the summer program not only prevented summer learning loss but also improved academic attitudes, behaviors, and performance. More than 90 percent of parents/caregivers agree that the program helped their child to read more often, have a more positive attitude about school, and improve their self-confidence.
