Summer Learning for Bryant Students

According to Johns Hopkins University, the effects of summer learning loss can result in nearly a three-month loss in grade-level equivalency in math and a two-month loss in grade-level equivalency in reading.  In order to close the summer learning loss gap in reading and math, all middle school students will be  expected to complete Summer Learning before they return in the fall.  Teachers will grade the completed summer work when school opens in September.  Below are the expectations for math and literacy.  Thank you so much for supporting your child’s development through summer learning.

Math:

  • Complete 60 minutes of Khan Academy a week, based on their NWEA level.
  • Students need to access Khan through Clever from the Dearborn Schools Student page.
