The COVID-19 pandemic disproportionately impacted learning opportunities.
In February 2021, Early Milestones and the Colorado Education Initiative (CEI) sent an open letter launching the Recovery Summer Coalition. Centered on equity, the coalition prioritized partnerships with families to provide children with learning and social-emotional opportunities that summer.
This was a collective effort; our school systems cannot, and should not, carry this burden alone. More than 60 partner organizations took action and responded to parents’ desires and supported whole child learning recovery.
