How California schools are making the most of new increased state investments

PCY Summer Report banner

Summer learning programs are more important than ever, as schools combat the ongoing negative impacts of school closures and pandemic trauma on students’ academic progress and social-emotional skills. California leaders have stepped up for students and families with a sense of urgency with a $4 billion investment in the Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P).

This new report from the Partnership for Children & Youth provides an analysis of summer trends in the first full year of ELO-P implementation. The findings and recommendations apply to districts and state leaders focused on both summer and year-round programming. It is based on interviews with school districts and community providers on the front line of implementation, as well as statewide data.
