Summer Learning and Enrichment National Convening April 26 & April 27, 2021

On  April 26th from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT and on April 27th from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (ET), the U.S. Dept. of Education is hosting the Summer Learning & Enrichment Collaborative National Convening. Specifically, the convening represents an opportunity from Secretary Cardona for national education leaders, state team members, and other interested partners to discuss and collaborate on the importance of evidence-based summer learning and enrichment programs that address the urgent needs of students, including those students disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Over two days of Collaborative conversations, participants will discuss:

  • Best practices for equity-driven approaches that meet the needs of students most impacted by the pandemic;
  • Evidence-based summer learning and enrichment strategies that address students’ social, emotional, mental health, and academic development; 
  • Guidance for using American Rescue Plan funds to effectively address the summer learning and enrichment needs; and
  • Strategic opportunities to partner across states, districts, philanthropy, non-profit, and community organizations, bringing together diverse stakeholders to create and sustain successful programs together.
