Christine Kelley, Principal
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.

By the end of SY 2022-23: 100% of students in Grades 2 & 5 will complete a POG POL in which they reflect on growth of 2 POG attributes. The POG POL will be scored using the FCPS POG POL rubric and data will be documented within Rubi.
100% of students in Grades K, 1, 3, 4, & 6 will show growth on two POG attributes (CT choice) using POG self-reflections scored with the reflection on POG skill use rubric given at the beginning of the year and the end of the year.
Collaborative Teams will align content knowledge and skills with POG attributes and skills.
Teachers will design and facilitate inquiry based opportunities that provide meaningful learning experiences that support POG skill practice.
The school will develop an understanding with students, staff, and community about why POG attributes and skills impact students within and beyond school.
