Dallas City of Learning (DCOL) is a citywide initiative to ensure all students have access to high-quality summer learning programs that stem learning loss. DCOL, launched in 2014, served nearly 70,000 participants in summer 2017 through the efforts of over 500 partners. Join the DCOL initiative today as we work together to collaboratively remove the barriers for youth to ACCESS summer learning programs, increase the cumulative DOSAGE of summer learning that youth in Dallas receive, and continue to push for high QUALITY summer learning experience for all youth in Dallas.
