Dallas City of Learning

The Challenge

Many children do not have access to summer learning, widening the opportunity gap as hours of learning loss accumulate from K through 12.

The Solution

Dallas City of Learning is a public-private citywide partnership between the City of Dallas and Dallas ISD, managed by Big Thought, to ensure all students have access to summer learning opportunities that stem summer learning loss. Dallas City of Learning builds a powerful network of neighborhood, community, and city partners to connect students to valuable local and digital resources.
