It’s summer-slide time in Akron. That’s the name of a program the City of Akron and Akron’s Schools are working on together to keep kids from losing ground in reading during the summer break.
Volunteers will be paired up with students to read with them two hours a week through the summer. The program will be offered at a half-dozen community centers around town. And, it will come with a lunch for the kids, too.
What will it cost taxpayers?
