Atlanta parents: Apply now to ward off summer learning loss

Atlanta schools are offering Summer Academies to help students ward off “summer learning loss” and get on track in reading, math and science.

Rising first through eighth graders at high-poverty schools are eligible, though priority will be given to students who are performing below their peers.

The Summer Academies run from June 1-June 30 at select schools.

Parents can enroll their children online or by submitting a paper form to their child’s school. The deadline to enroll is May 10.
