Happy Valley East will wholistically address the academic and SEL impact, especially for students disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 through summer school, reading intervention and introducing a new SEL program (Hallway Heroes) for students.
Happy Valley East will monitor the effectiveness of in-school interventions (reading intervention teacher) and summer school (tutoring) interventions through benchmark testing, both formative and summative assessments, teacher input and regular PLC data review meetings. Baseline data is collected and evaluated to assess instructional needs of students and to provide specific intervention strategies to reduce impact of lost instructional time. Student attendance and review of grades will also be used to monitor academic progress.
In addition to the academic intervention support, an SEL program using Hallway Heroes, is designed to respond to the social-emotional and mental health impact on all students and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. The students will provide feedback on the progress of their social emotional goals.
The program is designed to provide students with strategies and resources to support their needs. Feedback of the program will be shared with teachers, nurse, and administrator to assess overall effectiveness of program.
