Additional learning opportunities will be provided before/after school, during Fall and Spring intersession breaks, and during the summer to address the academic impact of lost instruction time. For 8 days during summer break, students will be invited to attend free Summer School for 6 hours a day. Teachers will use Beyond Textbooks as a research-based intervention program to plan instruction and provide students with additional evidence-based interventions and remediation.
Additional learning opportunity instruction will be offered by a certified teacher and with research based instructional strategies. Additional learning opportunities and supports during the school day will be increased through the addition of Remediation and Acceleration Paraprofessionals.

A District Remediation and Acceleration Coordinator has been created to provide district leadership and support in this area.

The addition of a District Family Resource and Community Coordinator will provide families with direct access to support for students who are low-income, experiencing homelessness, in foster care, and/or in need of out of school mental health services.
