Boston Public Schools were honored Wednesday as a leader for innovative summer learning, a “shining example” for cities across the country.
The National Summer Learning Association presented Boston’s Thompson Island Outward Bound Education Center with the 2019 Lands’ End Love Learning Summer Learning Award — to recognize its summer learning excellence.
“The Boston Public Schools’ 5th Quarter is a national model for summer learning programming that ensures access to enriching opportunities for every student,” BPS Superintendent Brenda Cassellius said in a statement. “I’m so grateful to Boston After School & Beyond and all of our partner organizations that contribute to this community effort, enabling our youth to remain active and engaged, learning all year round.”
Boston students on Wednesday joined city, state and national leaders at Courageous Sailing on Boston Harbor to showcase Boston’s role as a leader.
