What iS The Summer Slide???

Each summer, students lose critical math and literacy skills, widening the achievement gap and requiring substantial remediation at the start of each school year.

To prevent this “summer slide,” EverFi has partnered with Major League Baseball to develop a continuous and engaging learning experience that prepares students of all backgrounds to enter the next school year on track.

Test Scores

  • 6 weeks are spent re-learning old material each fall [Oxford Learning (2015)]
