Open Doors Community School, Inc.
These funds and the ESSER III plan for Open Doors will support mental health services for students by hiring a social worker/counselor to address mental health needs brought up by the pandemic. This position will also address needs of families and students with special needs such as low income, students of color, and children with disabilities. The Director of Instructional Support will work with teachers to assure that students who have been disproportionally impacted by the pandemic will have their academic needs met through assessment and differentiating instruction. This position will work with the teachers and aids on the plan laid out in the ESSER project to deliver evidence-based curriculum including Amplify curriculum and IXL. This will address lost instructional time and address the needs of all students. One instructional aid will be hired to address in the classroom for part of the day, and then to work in the afterschool program and provide tutoring and academic support to students in order to address learning loss.
