Summer Programs

Ensuring Every Student is Connected to a Summer Learning Opportunity

  • While students are months away from summer vacation, planning has already begun for the Tuscaloosa City Schools (TCS), but we need your help! Whether you are a parent, TCS teacher, college professor or program provider, your input is needed.

    As part of the Tuscaloosa City Schools' strategic plan and our commitment to move the needle of excellence every day for every student, the system seeks to communicate summer enrichment opportunities to its students.

    TCS Superintendent Dr. Mike Daria says his goal is to ensure every student is connected to a summer learning opportunity in the community.

    “Our community has so many summer enrichment opportunities available, we just wanted to make sure parents know what all is offered whether free or fee-based,” said Daria. “Summer is a great time to spark a new excitement for learning about things that interest students.”

    Research shows that students who are not engaged in summer learning opportunities are likely to experience some level of learning loss, commonly known as “summer slide.” This trend is further compounded for students living in poverty.
