ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A new summer learning program is more successful than the city was expecting.
The “Launch to Learn: Summer Learning Initiative” program challenges students using a passport system.
The goal is to get the stamps by visiting libraries, museums and community centers. The passports were given out to APS Title One summer school students.
The city was hoping 15,000 students would participate. They say about 20,000 have been attending.
The passport requires reading books and gives access to healthy meals, transportation and health care.
Students will turn in the passports for prizes.
