We received this email from Leslie Gabay-Swanston at the National Summer Learning Association
As 2018 quickly approaches, the National Summer Learning Association (NSLA) seeks to expand the capacity of communities to coordinate key systems and leverage existing infrastructures to increase quality summer programming for those most in need.
After launching a successful cohort in 2017, NSLA is excited to invite a new group of cities in 2018 to begin building a system of summer learning in their community. With many local entities focused on boosting student achievement, implementing quality standards, and maximizing opportunities for expended learning, a more coordinated and strategic approach to how the summer space is used can accelerate the impact of all efforts. NSLA invites you to continue to build on this movement by joining a select group of cities that will embark on this work in 2018.
The Request for Qualifications is intended to be completed by funding agencies and I encourage you to reach out to funders in your network that may be interested in deepening their support. Proposals are due January 19, 2018.
We will hold an informational webinar on December 19 at 2pm ET.
Please let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.
