Kent ISD — Community partners, local libraries and area teachers are joining again to help Kent County-area students with learning during summer break.
Called Summer Brain Gain, opportunities for K-12 students include two-week instructor-led online classes, math and reading programs, activities from cultural and community organizations and printed activity packets.
Registration opened June 1 and is available online at Kent ISD’s Summer Brain Gain page. Students in grades 9-12 seeking credit recovery should register by June 15 for the MySchool@Kent Summer School program.
Area superintendents asked Kent ISD to create Summer Brain Gain in an effort to encourage students to continue learning and stem anticipated learning losses due to the pandemic.
Learning options include:
- Printable learning activity packets located on the Summer Brain Gain page
- A list of education sites and online activities hand-picked by experts at Kent ISD
- Instructor-led 2-week classes (some beginning in June, others in July and ending by Aug. 7)
- Educational offerings by area cultural and community organizations who are SNN Education Everywhere partners such as John Ball Zoo, Grand Rapids Public Museum, Van Andel Institute, Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum and more.
