Your summer reading program for 2023

For over a decade, Springboard Collaborative has provided high-quality summer reading programs for struggling readers with a focus on historically marginalized students in Pre-K through 3rd graders. Our customizable district and school solutions produce 3 months of reading growth in participating students on average.

Our programs help students gain essential early literacy skills by:

Providing students with daily instruction grounded in the Science of Reading

Upskilling families to support high-quality reading at home

Coaching support for teachers and turnkey materials

Many district partners choose to implement Springboard as a half-day summer reading program, with some choosing to implement Springboard as a year-round learning solution. Beyond summer, Springboard can be implemented as a high-impact tutoring program or an afterschool reading accelerator that integrates with a site-based 21st Century program. Regardless of your program type, Springboard’s implementation team trains and coaches your teachers along the way to ensure their success.

Why districts choose Springboard

Our partners work with us because they: 

  • Seek to invest in supports for struggling readers that deliver results

  • Lack the capacity to design or manage reading programs independently 

  • Hope to nurture more intentional family engagement and collaboration to accelerate reading outcomes

  • Need fully-scripted materials to relieve over-taxed teachers

  • Want to infuse systemic and explicit phonics instruction into teaching and learning

Support struggling readers

Springboard programs work well for all students, but they are especially effective as achievement gap solutions. An external evaluation has shown that the largest reading gains are for students behind grade level.

Springboard Mission

Make summer reading collaborative

This is more than a summer phonics program. Rigorous classroom instruction is paired with family engagement to ensure that high-quality reading happens beyond the classroom. During weekly family workshops, family members learn specific reading support strategies to use at home.
