CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will launch its 2022 Expanded Learning Programming in June.

According to district officials, these programming opportunities provide additional and much-needed learning and teaching support for students during June, July and August.

“Each day, CMS students are learning to be leaders in a technologically savvy and globally competitive world. But often, a learning gap exists from the end of one school year to the start of the next. This is where expanded, or in some cases, extended learning opportunities play a role,” a news release stated.

According to CMS, the Expanded Learning Programs for 2022 are:

  • Read to Achieve Summer Camp – Rising third and fourth graders who are below grade level in literacy can participate.
