Summer Slide Book Donation
What is “summer slide?”
It is the tendency for students, especially those from low-income families, to lose the reading skills they gained during the previous school year. This is a big threat for the 60% of low-income families who have little to no access to books in the home.
San Diego Council on Literacy is raising funds to provide more books to low-income families with children enrolled in grades TK through 2nd grade across San Diego County before summer 2017. Our goal is to distribute 7,000 new books.
