Atlanta community leaders and celebrities are making a concerted effort to ensure their students, many of which are in underserved communities, enroll and actively participate in summer school. The inspirED Summer initiative will kick-off with a series of musical performances in June. Atlanta students who attend summer school and complete a list of activities including classroom check-in, reading exercises, interactive lessons and more will have the chance to attend the private events. The deadline to register for is May 15th.
“I’ve seen firsthand the impact of online classes on students, not only academically but emotionally. Encouraging our students to attend summer school will help them to refocus and readjust academically in the classroom setting for the school year ahead.” says Ludacris. “The Ludacris Foundation is proud to support inspirED Summer. inspired Summer is a first-of-its-kind initiative to get Atlanta students enrolled in and parents and teachers excited about summer school.”
