Additional classroom assistants in a supportive instructor role during the school day is scheduled for poor and disadvantaged students whose data is showing a significant decrease in performance due to lost instructional time.
The loss of enrollment due to the pandemic has created a deficit in finances that would result in a loss of key instructors that support the pedagogy. Intervening in the loss of key special subjects such as handcrafts/arts by retaining a teacher who specializes in this subject supports student academic, social, emotional and mental health needs by sustaining the continuity of the curriculum. The additional hours for the school counselor is critical in supporting social, emotional and mental health needs of all of our students. The addition of personnel to support a food program that supports students ability to function at learning through appropriate resources of food for the school day is a critical intervention for students effected by the pandemic.
