This document provides a look at 15 of the most salient practices focused on graduation rate improvement. Although each of the 15 effective strategies for increasing the graduation rate can stand alone, an effective program will use several, if not all of the strategies. Several best practices to improve attendance and reduce truancy have been identified: Effective programs will exhibit the elements of best practices and the 15 effective strategies.
The Importance of Summer Reading: Public Library Summer Reading Programs and Learning Goals of Summer Reading at New York Libraries Advance literacy and academic performance by engaging children and teens in reading and reading-related activities during the summer months.

Annotated bibliography The Board of Regents and I encourage students across New York to participate in summer reading programs at their local public libraries.
The Summer Reading at New York Libraries program, supported by the State Library in conjunction with our partners in the State Assembly and Senate, is an excellent resource for students.
Summer reading programs put books in the hands of children and helps students build reading skills, prevent summer learning loss, and prepare for a successful school year. Access to books and library programs over the summer results in more reading which, in turn, results in improved reading skills.
Margolis The document below, including the bibliography, in. The body of existing research demonstrates the critical importance that the early development of summer reading habits can play in providing the foundation for later success.
Summer learning research can be broadly categorized under the following themes: However, during the summer the disadvantaged youth fell significantly behind in reading. This finding validates the importance of education but also indicates the disparities evident between students from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
Cunningham and Keith E. Differences in out-of-school access to books, positive reading practices, and connections with institutions supportive of self-discovery and reading, account for much of the disparity in student academic success.
This has a cascading effect as children grow and develop. This idea is supported by research from Barbara Heynwho found that reading was the most influential factor related to summer learning. If children have the opportunity to listen to, discuss, and read books on topics that they select, they will develop extensive background information which can serve as a platform from which to engage in their own independent reading.
Children who enjoy reading will read more and become proficient at the same time. Summer reading programs in libraries exemplify this kind of hybrid program.
They concluded that, in addition to literacy related activities, children in library programs benefited academically from story hours, arts and crafts, and other special events designed to enhance the reading experience. Current research points out that increased summer reading reduces summer learning loss.

Family socioeconomic status has been linked to the access children have to books in their homes and neighborhoods.
This longitudinal experimental study tested the hypothesis that providing elementary school students from low-income families with a supply of self-selected trade books ameliorates the summer reading setback.
The study provides the best evidence to date that ensuring easy and continuous access to self-selected books for summer reading is a good strategy for addressing summer reading set-back and the achievement gap that exists between students from more and less economically advantaged families.
Researchers from John Hopkins University used data from the Baltimore Beginning School Study to examine the long-term educational consequences of summer learning differences by family socio-economic level. The authors examine achievement scores to trace their development from 9th grade back to first grade.
The study concluded that the achievement gap between high-low socioeconomic statuses is mainly traced to differential summer learning over the elementary school years. The consequence of this achievement gap substantially accounts for major differences in high school completion and four year college attendance.
