South Phoenix Academy Inc.
As a school-wide Title I school, salaries and benefits for Core and Supplemental Teachers, Summer School Teachers, and Before/Afterschool teachers address the unique needs of low-income children or students. Because the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of our students is our greatest priority, we have budgeted all ESSER III funds to provide salaries and benefits for Teachers to provide high-quality academic and social/emotional interventions for students. Teachers will utilize Renaissance Star, an academic Benchmarking assessment system for both ELA and Math, which feeds assessment data into Freckle, an evidence-based learning intervention program. Teachers will use these systems to assess the academic needs of students and provide personalized, targeted academic interventions to combat learning loss due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, Teachers will provide Social/Emotional learning and intervention using The Leader in Me, an evidence-based program based on the CASEL SEL framework. ESSER III funds will provide these academic and social/emotional learning and intervention opportunities for students in the School's student subgroups including Hispanic/Latino, African American, and Economically Disadvantaged students.
