Students can continue learning during the summer break by participating in the West Virginia Department of Education's Summer Reading and Math Challenge. Research tells us that young readers who don't continue to read and practice math skills over the summer are likely to lose crucial ground. One summer off can sometimes mean a whole school year of struggling academic performance.
That's why the West Virginia Department of Education has created this webpage, which includes tools and resources you can use to encourage students to read and practice their math skills. The challenge to keep children reading and doing math this summer is part of the West Virginia Department of Education's ongoing efforts to improve student achievement.
If you are aware of or sponsor a summer learning challenge and would like to be represented on this page, please contact the WVDE Communication Office at 304-558-2699 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to help promote this effort, please use our flyer and postcard.
