With ESSER funds, this past summer we offered free summer school courses to all of our students. We had 60 kids participate. We had both academic and SEL staff support during the program which occurred mainly during the month of July. We also implemented, with ESSER funds, legal advice services for our mitigation plan, policies and procedures. ESSER funds also allowed us to create an outdoor playground to both support social distancing and to provide outdoor enrichment activities to meet student SEL needs. We are primarily trying to address the negative impact of COVID-19 on student academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. The subgroups targeted in our school programs and activities include economically disadvantaged students (60%), children with disabilities (13%), Homeless students (4%); students in foster care (4%), and 55% of students who are racial/ethnic minority.
