We partner with state departments of education across the country to combat summer learning loss by encouraging students to access free online tools designed to promote reading and maintain math skills during the summer break. We can also provide customized materials and implementation strategies to launch and enhance summer learning initiatives in your state.

Summer Reading: “Find a Book”

The “Find a Book” tool enables users to select books based on a student’s Lexile measure and interests. Educators, parents and students can use this free search tool to build custom lists and then locate their selections at the local public library.

Summer Math: The Summer Math Challenge

The Quantile Summer Math Challenge is a free math skills maintenance program targeted to students who have just completed grade 1 through 8 and is designed to help students retain math skills learned during the previous school year.

For six weeks in the summer, parents who enroll their children in the program will receive daily emails with fun activities and links to educational resources. Here is a sample of the Summer Math Challenge emails.
