According to the RAND Corporation and Wallace Foundation report, Investing in Successful Summer Programs, summertime can be used to support an array of goals for children and youth, including academic enrichment, physical and mental health, social-emotional well-being, and the development of interests.

The only way we’re truly going to make critical summer learning and enrichment opportunities, more readily available through this pandemic and beyond, is through ingenuity and partnerships. It will take all of us—state and local leaders, parents, educators, and community partners—working together to ensure America’s students come out of this crisis stronger.

The purpose of this playbook is to provide a long-term, comprehensive, and sustainable framework for planning, collaborating, and executing evidence-based practices and partnerships for high-quality summer and out-of-school time (OST) experiences.
