Scottsdale Country Day School
In support of student learning and safe reopening of school, Scottsdale Country Day School will provide both summer school and after school tutoring activities as well as hire an employee to help monitor students in the lynch room and in afterschool programs. Additional funded supports to assist with COVID-19 impacts include a contracted school counselor, outdoor climbing structure, and the Leader in Me program to respond to student SEL needs; legal fees related to COVID; support for rental space and outdoor picnic tables; cleaning supplies; and advertising costs to recruit new teachers and students. School leaders will monitor the effectiveness of academic and SEL interventions implemented through benchmark testing, both formative and summative assessments, and teacher/parent/student input.
Data gathered will be evaluated to make decisions about the effectiveness of the interventions and the impact they have on lost instructional time, the academic, social, emotional and mental health needs of all students, and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, including students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care and migratory students.
