While most kids look forward to putting away their notebooks and textbooks for the summer, a group of kids in Lafayette is using the next couple of months to prepare for the upcoming school year.

They’re part of the Lafayette Urban Ministry’s 5th Quarter Summer Learning Program, which is in its fourth year.

WBAA's Kristin Malavenda reports on the effort to close the achievement gap for low-income students in the area.
