Problem

Summer learning and nutritional losses are greater for children living in rural and low-income communities.

Children living in rural and low-income communities often fall behind during the summer months, starting each school year behind where they were the previous spring. Successive summers of limited learning opportunities may cause children to fall below grade level by the end of elementary school—putting them further and further behind more privileged peers.

Energy Express

Energy Express is a six-week summer program promoting the school success of children living in rural and low-income communities across West Virginia by:

Developing strong partnerships involving parents, schools, communities, and state agencies and organizations.
