2014 Jeffco Summer of Early Literacy (JSEL)
End of Year Celebration: Molholm Elementary
Jeffco Summer of Early Literacy (JSEL) completed its third year of a five-year pilot project that is gaining national recognition as one of the most effective programs that prevent summer reading loss among low-income K-3 students. JSEL expanded to include Pennington, Stevens and added 4-6 interventions in a few of participating schools.
Jenny Brundin, Education Reporter for Colorado Public Radio, visited the Jeffco Summer of Early Literacy (JSEL) program at Swanson Elementary School in Arvada. She aired this report on the "summer literacy slide" which JSEL addresses: http://www.cpr.org/news/story/jefferson-county-schools-trying-stop-summer-slide
