How does the LEA plan to use funds to implement prevention and mitigation strategies in order to continuously and safely operate schools for in-person learning?
*
Selma City Schools has made a concerted effort in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases. In our efforts to maintain clean and sanitary facilities, we are closely monitoring guidance and recommendations from CDC, as well as the Alabama Department of Public Health, to prevent and mitigate situations that impact the return to safe reopening of schools. At present, we are continuing our coordinated preparedness efforts for sanitation and disinfection practices that adhere to strict preventative measures and layered prevention strategies. For instance, our plan for the safe return to in-person instruction involves the following measures of safety and use of funds: a board approved mask policy for all scholars and staff while in school facilities  and on school buses, following our COVID-19 protocol, utilizing our district COVID-19 dashboard, continuous monitoring of community transmission of COVID-19 for positive cases and using the positivity rate to inform decisions about in-person, blended, and/or virtual learning options, install touchless hand sanitizer and water fountain stations at each facility and at multiple locations within each facility, renovate existing spaces that are prone to the transmission of communicable diseases by expanding spaces for social distancing, replacing carpet with hypoallergenic flooring, and creating touchless restrooms, provide students and staff with PPE to safeguard against disease, promote physical distancing of 3 feet by enforcing safeguards such as hiring class size reduction teachers when applicable, enact quarantine and contact tracing in collaboration with ADPH guidelines to limit exposure to infected persons, purchase generators to continue operations via a central hub, utilize disinfecting services, and purchase additional buses to promote social distancing, and replace and repair HVAC equipment
How will the LEA ensure that the evidence-based interventions will address the academic impact of lost instructional time and ensure that those interventions respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students including underrepresented student subgroups (each major racial and ethnic group, children from low-income families, children with disabilities, English Learners, gender, migrant students, students experiencing homelessness, and children and youth in foster care) and those who are particularly impacted disproportionately by the COVID-19 pandemic?
*
Selma City Schools will utilize the auxiliary teacher model in all K-2 classrooms to support core instruction, intervention, remediation and acceleration. All elementary schools will be staffed with a mathematics instructional coach to support math instruction for scholars and teacher content/pedagogy development. our 1:1 initiative will remain in place to support differentiation and blended learning strategies for all learners as well as to support smooth transitions to virtual and/or remote modes of instruction. Intervention, remediation, core and acceleration instructional software will be utilized to support all learners as well. A comprehensive K-12 extended learning program to include after-school and Saturday mini sessions with individualized instruction, ACT Prep, and high frequency tutoring will be implemented and staffed by certified teachers to address learning loss. xSEL, our comprehensive, six week summer learning program, includes enrichment, STEAM/Literacy/Math camps, credit recover and grade recovery to circumvent the summer slide. Members of our Academic Support Team, including our Early & Social Emotional Learning Coordinator, Behavior Interventionist, Mental Health Services Coordinator, Coordinator of Virtual & Non-Traditional Education and building counselors will collaborate with administrators, families, teachers and scholars to ensure that scholars receive the supports and services they need to be successful. Our Family Engagement Specialist will take the lead on connecting families to resources/services and our Community Engagement Specialist will support schools by facilitating partnership connections to schools and the greater community. Selma City is a Title I district with an above average poverty rate with 99% of scholars identified as African-American and a relatively high proportion of  children with disabilities. The Academic Support Team will also collaborate with special education teachers, the homeless liaison, and the EL coach to ensure that all of our potentially marginalized students are supported academically, socially, and emotionally and that mental health needs are addressed as well. If migratory and/or scholars in foster care enter our district, their needs will be similarly addressed.
How will the LEA comply with the requirements of section 427 of GEPA (20 U.S.C. 1228a)?
The description must include information on the steps the LEA proposes to take to permit students, teachers, and other program beneficiaries to overcome barriers (including barriers based on gender, race, color, national origin, disability, and age) that impede equal access to, or participation in, the ESSER III program.
*
Selma City will use ARP ESSER funds to enhance academic supports, safety and the social emotional wellbeing of our scholars. Our district will focus on responding to COVID-19, restorative practices, wellness and academic growth for all sub-groups regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, gender orientation and socio-economic status, through transparency and inclusion  to families and community members. Additionally, our district will initiate professional development in this area for all staff. Additionally, we will use ARP ESSER  funds to purchase computers and laptops as part of our district-wide technology upgrades and supports . Due to a large number of our students in the district being from low socioeconomic families, the district will use grant funds to integrate technology in all classrooms. All students in the district will have equal access to these resources. We will ensure that no student or teacher will be denied participation based on gender, race, national origin, disability or age. Additionally, districtwide professional learning will take place to ensure all staff members are knowledgable of way to support the needs of diverse students.
How will the LEA actively monitor their allocations, conduct interim audits to ensure an appropriate application of funds, collect and manage data elements required to be reported, and report this information to the community?
*
Interventions and progress will be monitored by the Teaching & Learning Department. and measured by formative assessments, universal screener, benchmark data, state assessments, and progress reports. Data will be viewed/analyzed holistically as well as disaggregated down to the subgroup level. Health data will be monitored and the district COVID-19 dashboard will remain updated on our website. Progress will be reported via School Board Meetings, press releases, school level communications, our district website,  advisory meetings, and social media (with the support of our Community Engagement Specialist; Our Family Engagement Specialist will draft and share "parent companions" to share with parents and families.  Our Internal Audits & Fiscal Support Coordinator, CSFO, and Director of Federal Programs will monitor allocations and ensure appropriate spending.
How will the LEA meaningfully engage with families and communities throughout the life of the ARP ESSER and other relief funds?
*
This plan is reflected in our district strategic plan, A Framework for Excellence. A Framework for Excellence update is currently being finalized with an additional area of focus - Safety & Wellness, a one year extension, and. updates/additions in the original areas. Selma City will host Strategic Plan Summit to officially mark the relaunch of the updated Framework for Excellence with one final opportunity for stakeholders to review and comment on the document. Our Community Engagement Specialist has already launched  "Did You Know?" and "Coming Soon" campaigns via social media. We will continue to engage our stakeholder in this manner as well as via Board Meetings, Talk Supt (our YouTube and podcast show), electronic flyers, and our district website.
