MDE Guidance for Supporting Summer Learning, Pandemic or Not

Summer Learning Student

Michigan Department of Education has created a Summer Learning Guidance Document with contributions from Michigan educators at every level. Supporting Summer Learning, Pandemic or Not provides a framework for local leaders and teachers to plan and implement summer learning programs and opportunities for all students and their families. It is designed to be a companion document to the Learning at a Distance Guidance document released by the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) in April. The content reflects research-based best practices for summer learning aimed at mitigating potential learning loss. The document includes one major academic section to address literacy and mathematics at the elementary, middle, and high school levels and multiple ancillary sections to support other aspects of summer learning and programming.
