2020 Learning Challenge

Years of research has shown how important continuous learning during the summer is to students. This is especially true this summer. The Mississippi Department of Education challenges districts and parents/guardians to continue the learning so that ALL students are prepared for the 2020-2021 school year. Make summer learning fun and engaging to help ALL our students RISE to the challenge.

Research has found that providing children starting at birth with consistent, language-rich experiences – such as talking, reading, and singing – can have important benefits on their brain development and future school success. A gap in the quantity and quality of words that children learn can directly impact their opportunities to succeed in school and later in life.
