ESSER III will support our academic and social emotional learning gaps/needs that have occurred since Covid-19 became a part of our students' lives as well as creating safe and healthy learning environments.
The 20% set-aside funding will be significantly aimed at the academic and SEL gaps/needs of our students. This includes the hiring of two additional classroom aides at .80 FTE or a total of 1.6 FTE; as well as an on-site counselor 1 day/week..
However, we will focus attention specifically on those who are 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.
