Research shows that students don't read as much during summer, especially students who don't have reading materials at home. Giving students at many of our Title 1 schools the opportunity to go to their school libraries and check out books during the summer provides the support they need to contiue reading all sumer long.
The 2012 Summer Reading Program is sponsored by Salem-Keizer Public Schools in cooperation with the Salem-Keizer Education Foundation.
