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.

English Content Teams will identify individual students who are at risk within English courses and develop At-Risk Student Intervention plans and progress monitoring structures.

Provide more targeted support for our Hispanic, English Language Learners, and students receiving Special Education services populations.

Increase opportunities for students to read, in order to increase reading comprehension skills. Increase opportunities for students to develop and practice critical thinking skills.

Provide strategies for students to self-assess their Portrait of a Graduate skills. Results of self-assessments will drive skills-based instruction.

ESSER III Mathematics Strategies

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

Math Content Teams will identify individual students who are at risk within Math courses and develop At-Risk Student Intervention plans and progress monitoring structures.

Math Content Teams will identify and focus on essential standards in order to provide time for students to improve prerequisite skills while meeting the essential standards of their current course.

Provide more resources and opportunities for personalized intervention based on students' name and need.

ESSER III Wellness Strategies

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

Build a structure for the Advisory block that supports building relationships and academic support. This includes adapting the Advisory Curriculum to create connections between students and teachers in Advisory classes, as well as maximizing various supports during the Advisory block.

Create a more welcoming school environment for all students by supporting students with their specific needs and areas of concern.

Identify subgroups and specific populations, including community members, that aren't being reached in order to learn about their needs and the best ways to support them. Then, provide the requested support.

Creating a safer school climate for all students.
