  • Tarrytown Schools Tackle Summer Slump

    Summer learning loss is a serious and substantiated problem, according to research done by the National Education Association. The Tarrytown School District works hard to combat this challenge through its Summer Literacy Institute, an initiative started five years ago by the Foundation for the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns in response to parents who expressed an urgent need for literacy reinforcement. In that time, the program has grown from one class of 16 students to six classes of more than 70. The rising first, second and third-graders read and discuss a book and then participate in word work where they focus on letters and sounds. Then they form smaller groups and receive more individualized attention. The program runs three hours a day for two weeks in August.
