Get Georgia Reading

Help Prevent Summer Learning Loss

Bulloch County Schools supports the Get Georgia Reading campaign sponsored by the Georgia Department of Education, the Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning, the Georgia Public Library Service, and Georgia Public Broadcasting. Visit GeorgiaSummer.org, for a toolkit full of resources for summer reading.

 

According to the Georgia Department of Education, 66 percent of teachers surveyed by the National Summer Learning Association reported that it takes them at least three to four weeks to re-teach the previous years' skills at the beginning of a new school year. When students don’t read and learn during the summer months, they lose educational ground: research shows that students can lose up to three months of reading ability over the summer. This phenomenon – known as summer slide– can lower achievement potential and widen the achievement gap. Fortunately, this is preventable. Research shows that children who read and learn during the summer don’t suffer the same losses, and may even show some growth in their reading ability.

 

Be sure to visit the Statesboro-Bulloch County Regional Library this summer to participate in their Summer Reading Program and for great special events and activities.
