American Charter Schools Foundation d.b.a. Alta Vista High School
The LEA will utilize the 20% set-aside to target practices and interventions that address the learning loss experienced by subgroups most impacted by COVID-19 (those that qualify as low-income, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students); due to the socio-economic status of the school population, all students may benefit from these targeted practices. The remaining funds will be used to provide additional services that allow for enhanced learning opportunities, space and technology for social distance, and other items which will enable the school to remain open after the initial shutdowns from the crisis.
Due to the demographics of the student population, setaside funds will be used on programs for all students, but highest priority will be given to students who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 such as low-income families, students of all races and genders, children with disabilities, English learners, migratory students, students experiencing homelessness, and children and youth in foster care. These programs will include instructional paraprofessional learning opportunities, school counselor, and implementation of Thrively software.
