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.
All student success rates will be monitored by school staff and if progress is not seen, adjustments will be made to instruction and interventions as needed per individual student in order to increase academic achievement All student behavior referral rates will be monitored by school staff, and if needs arise, new Social Emotional supports will be given to reduce behavior incidents and increase academic achievement in classes.
Setaside funds will be use to reimburse the expenses of several additional instructional aides to assist with the instruction of the general population (including but not limited to 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) and students with disabilities. In addition, a school counselor will provide social emotional services and teachers and parapros will provide summer enrichment for all students including but not limited to 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.
Remaining funds will be used to expand curriculum offerings at the school in order to address COVID-related learning loss, provide a marketing campaign to recruit teachers, reenroll students that left, boost summer school and special events enrollment, boost student/family engagement and notify about COVID status and reopening of school (social media, website, marketing specialist), and provide supports that will allow for technology-enhanced learning and social distance like computers for students, teachers, and staff, yearbook supplies, and hotspot service. In addition, the school will build 2 outdoor pavilions in order to create more space for social distance and will provide upgraded HVAC units and air purifiers for covid mitigation. Finally, the school will purchase video supplies in order to re-engage students with a new elective.
