ASU Preparatory Academy
ASU Prep will use ESSER III funding to address pandemic-related learning loss in a variety of ways. This includes a number of Instructional staff (Interventionists and a Teaching Fellow) who provide direct student academic support. Other instructional staff (Learning Facilitators, Science Teacher) will also provide academic supports to address learning loss. The extended leaning opportunities are designed to support students transition to in-person learning and addresses the academic impact of lost instructional time. Our ASU Prep student body has a number who were disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including English learners, children with disabilities, and students experiencing homelessness or in foster care. A social worker will work directly with students to address their SEL needs. Our interventions were developed based on feedback from key stakeholders, the majority who requested instructional supports to ensure student learning. These efforts are all designed to ensure that the site is able to meet academic, social, and emotional needs of our students. Progress will be measured using academic benchmark assessments and site leader oversight/monitoring of SEL strategies.
