Summer Learning Grants Resources

The pandemic has had an immense and disruptive impact on Oregon’s children. Additionally, COVID-19 has disproportionately impacted Black, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Latino/a/x, Pacific Islander communities; students experiencing disabilities; and students and families navigating poverty. Students, families and educators have been resilient in the face of the many challenges that have been presented by the pandemic. Nevertheless many students have experienced interrupted learning and inconsistent connections with their peers. Many students also continue to have basic needs such as food, shelter and wellness and support for mental, social and emotional health.

To address these needs, House Bill 5042A authorizes the Oregon Department of Education (ODE) to make available $195.6 million General Fund and $10 million Federal Funds in grant funding to participating school districts for academic summer school to support high school students facing academic credit loss, summer enrichment programs, and wrap-around child care.

The pages linked below contain the most recent resources and information available for school districts and charter schools on these grant programs.

For questions regarding these programs, please view the Summer Learning Grants FAQs (updated 6.24.21) or email the Summer Learning team.
