Summer programs hit a high note for thousands of students

Educators across the county called on Kent ISD to deliver more robust summer learning opportunities following the school shutdown due to the pandemic. Teachers from pre-K to high school advanced calculus answered the call. In all, some 1,300 students from all 20 Kent ISD districts signed up for the Grand Rapids Academic Summer Program and hundreds more took part in over 70 instructor-led courses. What they learned included — and went well beyond — reading, writing and arithmetic.
