ESSER III 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: At Parklawn, we will continue to refine our Tier 1 practices to include the use of differentiated literacy instruction.

Strategy 3: Teams will ensure differentiated, high quality instruction across settings through collaboration between general and special education teachers.

ESSER III Mathematics Strategies

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

Strategy 1: At Parklawn, we will continue to develop components of the math workshop to provide engaging and differentiated instruction (i.e., small groups, tasks), including the use and analysis of formative assessments to drive instruction.

Strategy 2: At Parklawn, we will continue to refine our Tier 2/3 practices to include the use of differentiated math instruction.

Strategy 3: Teams will ensure differentiated, high quality instruction across settings through collaboration between general and special education teachers.

Strategy 2: The Wellness Team will lead all staff and students in learning and implementation of emotional regulation strategies.

 

School Innovation and Improvement Plan 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: 100% of students will participate in learning experiences from the AAP resources/curriculum in literacy and math each quarter.

Strategy 1: At Parklawn, all teachers in grades K-5 will explore, implement, and reflect upon AAP resources/curriculum throughout the CLT cycle.

OTHER End of Year SMARTR Outcome

Goal: 10% increase in favorable responses on the FCPS SEL screener for Grades 3-5

Strategy 1: At Parklawn, we will continue to implement and refine our MTSS practices to provide quality, differentiated instruction and intervention to all students. This will include the behavior/wellness component of MTSS.

Strategy 2: At Parklawn, we will collaboratively learn, explore, and implement best practices for cultural responsiveness to increase equity and anti-racism in our school community.
