The allotted funds will be utilized for a comprehensive approach to combating the needs of our scholars and families that have resulted from the pandemic. While our school district enrollment continues to grow, we are seeing needs that have been amplified in all populations as a result of local school closures during the pandemic. Interventions (Summer School, Math Interventionists, Social Workers) that address the social, academic, emotional and mental health needs of students as included in the Set-Aside. We are expanding our intervention programs to include Math Interventionists, implementing a comprehensive MTSS/RTI software (Branching Minds), adding 5.0 additional social workers, and enhancing our summer program offerings. We will be utilizing an evidence-based, web-based, standards-aligned, adaptive program for our summer and Intervention programs called SuccessMaker. Our goal is to partner with our families from all angles, whether it be academics, social, emotional or mental health. We have thoughtfully considered the needs of our scholars and families and do believe these additional services will provide the platform to make whole child gains in our program. The benefits from the additions discussed will benefit all scholars including those identified by universal academic screeners, those that are demonstrating trauma, those that have had adverse childhood experiences, are in crisis or have been identified through a needs survey. This includes all racial groups, economically disadvantaged scholars, children with disabilities, English learners, gender and migrant status; students experiencing homelessness; and children and youth in foster care.
