LightSail Research Study: SummerSail 2015

In 2015, LightSail’s SummerSail Reading Program provided at-risk middle school students with access to LightSail for seven weeks in an effort to combat “summer slide” — a phenomenon by which economically disadvantaged children rarely read during the summer as compared to their more advantaged peers.

This research study evaluates the program’s impact and outcomes  for 280 students from  in a large urban school district.
