Start Your Summer Strong: Plan Ahead to Maximize 2021

Summertime is crucial for students and teachers alike, and 2021 is no exception. Done well, the summer months can be a springboard for students to succeed in the fall; meanwhile, staff can learn valuable instructional strategies from professional development trainings. Using the summer effectively is more important than ever—start planning now to avoid pitfalls including student regression and learning loss. Let’s set the stage for an even better 2021-2022 school year!

Resources to Maximize Your Summer!

Many things have changed during the last school year for teachers and paraprofessionals, along with new or different school protocols. Start the year out with success by participating in our STAR Extended School Year Professional Development Program.

With a strong focus on district needs, we have developed a comprehensive ESY professional development program to provide students with high-quality instruction while training current and new staff in evidence-based instructional strategies.
