Seamless Summer Learning

The Greenwich Public Schools Seamless Summer Learning program provides access to IXL for math and our first-ever Digital Library collection of titles for summer reading through Overdrive for parents to engage their children in learning for enjoyment, all designed to support prevention of summer learning loss. Whether your child has a school-issued device or is accessing the resources from any web-enabled device, all K-5 students will be able to participate in the programming available for summer learning.

Purpose of a Seamless Summer Learning Experience:

  • Access to familiar district digital tools and resources (App or web based)
  • Access to a digital library collection of titles to support student choice and "just right" reading level
  • Accessible anytime and anywhere
  • Participation has the potential to lessen the "summer learning loss"
