Slide 10: 

“Putnam shows how we have become increasingly disconnected from family, friends, neighbors, and our democratic structures – and how we can reconnect” (Block, 2008, p. 17). In order to change this growing trend, we need to focus on bridging social capital. Using Putnam’s research, Learned Skills Summer Reinforcement Program will educate families on the importance of having their children involved in a summer program rather than watch television, play video games, and use social networks on the computer. “John McKnight is a leading light in the world of understanding the nature of community and what builds it” (Block, 2008, p.12). McKnight Insights Gifts Associational Life Power in our Hands Learned Skills Summer Reinforcement program will build a stronger community by focusing on its gifts and finding the power to identify problems and executing ways to solve them.

Improving the lot of others : 

Improving the lot of others LSSRP aims to bring awareness to the epidemic of summer regression. LSSRP will be the voice for children who cannot speak for themselves by putting an end to the frustration faced by many at the beginning of the school year. LSSRP will keep the students’ skills active while they participate in weekly themed activities and lessons, attend weekly field trips, and become active members of the community through their partnership with Ethel M’s Cactus Garden. LSSRP will be a credible program that will continue to focus on its goal of ending summer regression by providing a summer learning program and educating parents on the importance of keeping learned skills fresh.

BUDGET RATIONALE : 

BUDGET RATIONALE Research shows that a quality summer school program can combat summer regression (Bailey, 2006). With the proper funding, LSSRP can keep learned skills alive during the summer months. Thus allowing teachers to focus on the current curriculum. Research shows that teachers spend the first four to six weeks re-teaching material (Samantha Cleaver, 2006). Not funding this program would be a disservice to the children in our community.
