Beat summer learning loss with Mathnasium

With the successful completion of our content acquisition process for K-2 ELA resources we look forward to the next content acquisition process that  will include 3-12 English Language Arts. As we continue to establish a balanced literacy approach for ELA as outlined in The Cobb Commitment, we will consider resources that support this model and address the needs identified through our needs assessment and district data. 

Input from our parents is very important.  Please take a moment to take this needs assessment survey: 3-12 Parents: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VX2C7KY

Families can access digital resources associated with the math and literacy learning guides through the Summer Link webpage.
