Shane Wolfe, 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, and 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.

Analyze data and determine which interventions are needed (including WIDA, Heggerty Phonics, Read Naturally, Lexia, Cars and Stars, Phonics First, Reading Mastery, Fundations, and Just Words) to support individual students by name and by need, providing tailored support to ELs, SWDs, and economically disadvantaged groups.
- Support teachers using updated PPGs by providing new Read Aloud titles to build student vocabulary and oral language skills.
