Parklawn Elementary School
Rebecca Forgy, Principal
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

Strategy 1: At Parklawn, we will provide daily, systematic, explicit instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, and morphology in the core language arts block.
Strategy 2: At Parklawn, we will ensure targeted practice opportunities for every student (Tier 1) and additional time for those students who need more practice.
Strategy 3: Parklawn Instructional Staff will provide Tier 2 instruction as increased intervention that targets the underlying difficulties in literacy, as well as Tier 3 instruction as intensive instruction for students who need instruction beyond Tier 1 and Tier 2.

Goal: 100% of students will make adequate progress toward the grade level expectation as measured by the Spring 2023 Math iReady Universal Screener.
Strategy 1: CLTs will plan, implement, and monitor engaging and differentiated tier 1 instruction through math workshop.
Strategy 2: Instructional staff will further expand our Tier 2/3 practices to include increased use of math intervention resources and programs.
Strategy 3: At Parklawn, we will increase family and community engagement/participation to support mathematics initiatives.
ESSER III Wellness Strategies
Outcome: Ensure students feel safe, included, and supported in the school environment.

Goal: 100% of students will demonstrate increased understanding of POG and an increase in student engagement as reported on a student survey given at the beginning and end of the year.
Strategy 1: The school will build an understanding with students, staff, and community about why being a Goal-Directed and Resilient individual positively impacts students within and beyond school.
