ASU Preparatory Academy - Casa Grande
ASUP will use ESSER III funding to address pandemic-related learning loss in a variety of ways. This includes a ELL teacher and a teaching fellow to provide students with interventions and small group learning. This extended leaning opportunity is designed to support students transition to in-person learning and addresses the academic impact of lost instructional time. It also includes a Learning Success Coach who will spend their time providing individualized support to students based on identified risk factors including academic, socio-emotional, and other potential issues, and help to develop individual plans for success. The Learning Success Coach will attend a RULER training on SEL strategies for students. Our ASUP student body has a number who were disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including students from low-income families, English learners, and children with disabilities. Our interventions were developed based on feedback from key stakeholders, the majority who requested instructional supports to ensure student learning. The site principal and school leadership team are responsible for monitoring and evaluating the extent to which the interventions meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students.
