LEA will offer an extended day program with an emphasis on Reading and Math to students K-8 who have experienced learning loss and are falling below grade level due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The extended day program will be offered beginning in the Fall of 2022 and end in the Spring of 2023. Ten certified teachers will tutor twice a week for one hour and work with students in small groups while focusing on intense Reading and Math interventions. Students will have the opportunity to get one-on-one instruction during this time. The curriculum used during the extended day program will be an extension of the school day curriculum to ensure student academic success in the classroom. LEA will continue to employ a part time school counselor and hire a full time school counselor to work with all students in grade levels K-8 who are dealing with increased mental, social and emotional stress due to the COVID-19 pandemic. LEA will also hire a part time Reading Specialist to work with all students K-8 during the school day, who are falling below grade level in Reading. The Reading Specialist will work in small groups while providing intense instruction, especially with the primary grade levels to ensure they successfully reach grade level reading by the third grade. LEA will make sure all students including students in subgroups are receiving equitable services through our programs. Teachers will use evidence-based programs/curriculum to measure student growth throughout the year; programs/curriculum such as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) and SAVAAS, IBELS/MAP (Tier 3), Reading A-Z, Moby Max (Tier 2) and State Mandated assessments. Students from various subgroups such as economically disadvantaged students, children with disabilities, English language learners, gender, homeless children and children in foster care will be considered. LEA will provide retention and appreciation stipends to all employees certified and classified for their continued dedication amidst the COVID-19 pandemic; their dedication has made it possible for our LEA to continue to operate successfully.
