NSLA Joins Engage Every Student Initiative
Engage Every Student was launched by U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona with support from five coordinating partners and more than 20 allied organizations.
This Initiative aims to ensure that every student who wants a spot in a high-quality out-of-school time program has one.

NSLA is proud to be working with our partners at Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) to co-lead a State Summer Learning Network of leaders from various state departments of education across the country.
NSLA hosted a historic conference for nearly 1,000 education and civic leaders working to support youth, families, and communities at the national, state and local levels. They gathered to discuss how best to help students combat summer and Covid learning loss, and how to close the achievement and opportunity gaps that exist between higher and lower income students.
We believe that when kids continue learning during the summer, they are healthier, safer, and more prepared for the school year ahead.
