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.

*Small group instruction in fluency (i.e. Readers Theatre, Read Naturally)

*Small group instruction with Corrective Reading - Decoding

*Explicit instruction on phonics and vocabulary (i.e. Rewards)

*Explicit instruction in reading comprehension


ESSER III Mathematics Strategies

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

*High quality, engaging math instruction to include differentiation, scaffolding, and re-teaching on an ongoing basis

*Access and apply math vocabulary (pre-teaching, reinforcement, cross-curricular connections)

* Students requiring Tier 2/3 supports will have access to repeated practice, differentiated, and scaffolded instruction to meet their individual needs.


ESSER III Wellness Strategies

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

*Provide classroom-wide supports for students and teachers to aid students and teachers in building relationships.  All students should feel there is an adult within the school they can trust.  Cooperative learning opportunities that allow teachers to engage with their students will aid in building the relationships among students / teachers / classrooms.

*Provide targeted student support to assist students in identifying and managing their emotions throughout the school day.

*Create an inclusive school climate for all stakeholders (i.e. Gator grams and Empathy Interviews)


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 the end of the 2021-2022 school year, 100% of students in the 4-6 classroom will receive Tier 1 instruction that integrates at least one AAP curriculum resource per quarter.

*AART will model/co-teach AAP Curriculum Resources with classroom teachers

*Teachers will utilize their Collaborative Learning Teams to align AAP curriculum resources to current units/pacing.
