The Boys & Girls Club of Door County (BGCDC) takes pride in announcing that summer program participants improved both their reading and math skills over the 11 weeks of camp. Executive Director Julie Davis said, “This summer the club was committed to preventing summer learning loss for our members. We are delighted to say that reading scores were up by four percent and math scores improved by nine percent by the end of the program. This is a huge win for the kids who were with us, and demonstrates the impact club can have on our members. Assessment of the before and after scores was done by our online learning engine, Stride Academy.”
Director of Academic Achievement Natalie LeRoy was responsible for oversight of the Stride Academy portion of summer programming. She said, “The students participate in Stride for one hour every week during the summer. We also spent time engaging in project-based, hands-on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math activities. The summer programs we provide are designed to keep minds active through a variety of different academic activities during the summer months.”
