After recent standardized test scores came back, the Sioux Falls School District noticed a concerning trend that math and reading scores started to decline at the third grade level as compared to statewide peers. The pilot program “Summer Climb” was designed to help this group of students bring up their test scores. Lower achieving students from the Sioux Falls School District will be able to attend one of three elementary schools (Hawthorne, Hayward and Susan B Anthony) to attend this full-day, eight week program. Feeding South Dakota will be providing a snack to all 225 students (75 in each school) Monday – Thursday. In each of these schools, more than 80 percent of children qualify for the free and reduced lunch program. The pilot program will run June 13 through August 11.
