Background: The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER III) is a federal grant which requires that spending be used in specific areas.  Part of the Fairfax County Public Schools spending plan identifies funding to be used for Unfinished Learning and Student Academic and Social, Emotional, Mental Health (Wellness) Needs.  Schools have been given funding allocations to support the academic and wellness needs of students.  Schools are required to create plans in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Wellness highlighting the strategies they will use to support these areas using their ESSER III funding.  These strategies are shown below.

 

ESSER III English Language Arts Strategies

Outcome: Ensure students are making sufficient progress to be on grade level in English Language Arts.

Strategy 1

Implement a robust Tier 3 intervention program aimed at improving specific decoding skills of individual students through small group instruction using strategies founded in the Science of Reading.

Strategy 2

Provide professional development for classroom teachers on how to effectively teach decoding to all students in order to improve Tier 1 and Tier 2 instruction of Phonological Awareness and Phonics.

Strategy 3

Create a school wide focus on data driven instruction using grade level data days, best practices for data reflection during CLT and school wide walk throughs

Strategy 4

Improve English Language Development for our ESOL students so that they may better access classroom instruction during the literacy block.

 

ESSER III Mathematics Strategies

Outcome: Ensure students are making sufficient progress to be on grade level in Mathematics.

Strategy 1

Improve small group instruction and reteaching through the Math Workshop model

Strategy 2

Implement a robust Tier 3 intervention program aimed at improving number sense and algebraic thinking for individual students through small group instruction using strategies founded in conceptual math.

Strategy 3

Develop the home-school connection by providing resources/manipulatives and games to reinforce the intervention at school.

 

ESSER III Wellness Strategies

Outcome: Ensure students feel safe, included, and supported in the school environment.

 

100% of students in 3rd-6th grade will respond 4 (Quite connected/ Belong quite a bit) or 5 (Extremely connected/ Completely belong) on the FCPS SEL Screener for questions 11. How connected do you feel to the adults at your school? and 12. Overall, how much do you feel like you belong at school?

Strategy 1

Implement Tier 1 Wellness Plan to ensure all students are taught SEL strategies.

Strategy 2

Develop a Tier 2 intervention plan to ensure students with specific needs are being taught appropriate skills to improve their social emotional health.

Strategy 3

Develop a Check in - Check out system for students that need additional behavioral support

 

Background: All Fairfax County schools are also required to complete an access and opportunity goal as part of their School Innovation and Improvement Plan (SIIP) and can also capture additional goals.  These are shown below.

 

Access & Opportunity End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Goal:
