Preparing for summer school is challenging. Educators have less planning time, are working around unfamiliar classroom resources, and typically have to deal with last-minute staffing changes. For many students who are attending summer school, receiving personalized instruction and differentiated resources is imperative to their academic growth. Oftentimes, a student is attending summer school because they need additional one-on-one time with a teacher, tailored instruction to address areas of weakness, and resources that are differentiated to their unique reading levels. The importance for teachers to maximize their time with students and diminish time misplaced searching for resources is critical during all times of the year, but especially for summer school.
