State of Summer
This year’s State of Summer will be held at the Latino Cultural Center in Dallas, Fri., Feb 24, 2023, 5pm -7:30pm.
Please RSVP to this important review of 2022 data and how it will affect Summer 2023.
This year, we encourage you to attend with your families. Learn how you, your family, and your community are part of this essential ecosystem that builds on student interests while supporting skills building for future success. The event will focus on Summer 2022 data and our collective impact. We will also be sharing partner highlights and awards, as well as a panel discussion on the state of out of school time learning with our very special guest, Dallas ISD Superintendent, Dr. Stephanie S. Elizalde.
