Florence Unified School District
FUSD will ensure that the interventions it implements, including but not limited to the interventions within the required 20% set aside (under section 2001(e)(1) of the ARP Act) to address the academic impact of lost instructional time, will respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students, and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students. FUSD will do so by regular communication with all stakeholders. This has already occurred in community meetings with all stakeholder groups where we have presented our response, and obtained feedback from families on the perceived needs of their students. FUSD has started an equity committee that includes parents, staff members, and board members who will help to design processes to ensure that disproportionately impacted groups are addressed.
