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: In 2021-2022, 85% of all students will make adequate individual measured growth in reading, as measured by PALs (K), iReady Reading (1-2), and Reading SOL (3-6).

Strategy 1: Instructional planning for small group instruction based on data.

Strategy 2: Create and implement an intervention system that provides direct instruction to support striving students.

Strategy 3: Students will independently apply what they learned during independent practice.

ESSER III Mathematics Strategies

Outcome: In 2020-2021, 85% of all students will make adequate individual measured growth in math, as measured by VKRP (K), iReady Math (1-2), and Math SOL (3-6).

Strategy 1: Instructional planning for small group instruction based on data.

Strategy 2: Create and implement an intervention system that provides direct practices to support striving students.

Strategy 3: Students will independently apply what they learned during independent practice during mathematics.

ESSER III Wellness Strategies

Outcome: Students will show an increase in self-management behaviors (managing stress, controlling impulses, motivating oneself, and persevering in addressing challenges) as measured by a 10% reduction in disruptive classroom behaviors.

Strategy 1: Adopt evidence-based SEL programs and activities in order to improve social, emotional, and academic success.

Strategy 2: Increase the implementation of Research based SEL strategies and programs to improve SEL.

Strategy 3: Support and reinforce student SEL school-wide, and in family and community partnerships.

 

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: By June 2022, 100% of general education classes will engage in an AAP experience each quarter as defined by the AAP Access to Rigor data collection.

Strategy 1: Deepen staff understanding of AAP curriculum use in a whole class setting.
