Secretary Cardona Launches the Summer Learning & Enrichment Collaborative

The Summer Learning & Enrichment Collaborative is a professional learning community that brings relevant stakeholders to the table to discuss how to build effective plans for high-quality, evidence-based summer learning and enrichment. The Collaborative, a partnership of the U.S. Department of Education with the Council of Chief State School Officers, the National Governors Association with support from the CCNetwork and other national partners launched with a National Convening in April 2021. Over the coming months, the Collaborative will bring education leaders and experts together as they develop their plans for this summer, with a focus on students who have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic. The Collaborative will help build capacity for states and school districts, in partnership with other key stakeholders, to use ARP ESSER funds to identify and implement evidence-based summer learning and enrichment strategies that meet the needs of all students.
