Flowing Wells Unified District
Flowing Wells School District uses high quality benchmark assessments in conjunction with state assessment results to evaluate the academic progress of students and determine appropriate acceleration strategies. Academic acceleration interventions include high-interest in-person extended day and summer programs taught by certified teachers. High-interest in-person enrichment programs also are provided during extended day and summer programming and also are taught by certified teachers and high quality paraprofessionals. Flowing Wells employs a continuum of approaches to match students with programs, including recruiting targeted students/families based on student assessment data, linking specific students with credit recovery opportunities, and advertising open enrollment opportunities to all families. Recruitment and advertising are provided in English and Spanish and are distributed to families through a variety of formats, including print, social media, email, and text messaging. Extended day interventions and summer programs will support the needs of all students, and particularly students from low-income families, students of color, and students with disabilities given the high concentration of these students enrolled in the Flowing Wells District. Additionally, Flowing Wells address students' social emotional needs through activities and interactions facilitated by the Fitness Center Coordinator and the Community Outreach Coordinator. Flowing Wells also addresses students' SEL needs through a variety of non-ESSER-funded strategies, including through student support specialists (social workers) at all levels, through school counselors in the secondary grades, and through systematic professional development provided to all first and second-year teachers focused on developing positive relationships.
