Stanford recognizes SSD with Community Partnership Award

Stanford recognizes SSD

Stanford University recognized Sunnyvale School District on March 1st with its 2024 Community Partnership Award. Research indicates that students who lack academic experiences during the summer sustain learning loss. Since 2010, Sunnyvale School District has partnered with the Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP) to offer a summer program for 600 to 800 students annually. The reciprocal partnership affords an academically enriching summer for K-8 students that instills confidence and a learning mindset, and the opportunity for Stanford graduate students to work with an expert teacher-mentor who equips them to hit the ground running in subsequent teaching placements. The partnership has involved more than 9,000 K-8 students, over 1,000 STEP students, and 400 classroom teachers and summer school leaders.
