Families Forward started on June 2, 2015, the Summer Enrichment Program at Hays Porter Elementary School.
One of classes is "Introduction to Computers" at two levels: one for kids in Grade 1-2, and and one with kids in Grade 5-6
Enrichment programs increase grade-level promotion, graduation rates, college enrollment and community involvement. Because students are more engaged, schools experience fewer bad-behavior incidents, less absenteeism and lower dropout rates.
Research shows that over the long summer break students can lose about one month of what they learned in classes during the school year. For many children, the lost knowledge can harm their ability to move forward academically.
Cincinnati Public Schools offers opportunities for students to keep learning over the summer.
