Cincinnati Awarded Funds for Summer Learning!

07/07/11

Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS) was awarded funds from The Wallace Foundation’s multi-year, $50 million summer learning initiative. CPS recently completed four weeks of full-day summer instruction and enrichment in June through its Fifth Quarter program, which taps community organizations to provide fine arts, technology, fitness and environmental education. Since this year’s program is completed, Wallace is supporting planning and curriculum development for next summer.

The Wallace initiative not only supports nonprofits that run successful summer learning programs, but places emphasis on the communication efforts to build awareness among policymakers and the public of the value of high-quality summer learning programs.
