As the school year winds down, educators and students eagerly anticipate the more relaxed schedule that summer vacation affords. However, a lengthy school break can result in a decline of one to three months in language arts and mathematics achievement scores (Cooper et al. 1996). Studies have shown that this “summer slide” most affects elementary students of low socioeconomic status (Alexander et al. 2001) and continues to affect those students beyond high school as they enter post-secondary education or the job market (Alexander et al. 2007).
