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?
*

The Washington County Board of Education plans to use the ARP ESSER funds to continuously and safely operate schools for in-person learning by ensuring students have safe and healthy environments when they are at school.  The funds will secure HVAC systems to replace worn/outdated and unsafe ones.  Air conditioning is also being placed on school buses.  The bus can get very hot during the summer months making it very unhealthy for students with physical issues to attend summer school.  Cooling the buses ensures that all students have the opportunity to participate in strategies to overcome learning losses.  Nurses will be available at all school sites. Sanitation supplies are being supplied to all schools, specifically all classrooms and areas where students are present.  This ensures the spread of any germs is limited at all times.  Class size reduction teachers are provided to prevent classrooms with very large numbers of students so they may spread out.

The ARP ESSER application for funds shall be evaluated twice per year to amend when additional needs arise and/or it is determined through a comprehensive evaluation that strategies need to be altered.  

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?
*

The Washington County Board of Education uses evidence-based interventions that address the academic impact of lost instructional time and to ensure that those interventions respond to the academic, emotional, and mental health needs of all students including underrepresented student subgroups (including major racial and ethnic groups, children of poverty, children with disabilities, EL students, migrant students, homeless students, foster care, and all genders.  

The academic losses for Washington County students were massive when the pandemic started.  The area is very rural and many students had no access to Internet services.  Even hotspots would not work because there is no cellular data access at their homes.  Many were relegated to paper packets mailed to them with limited instruction and little to no ability to receive personal contact with instructors.  When students returned to the traditional environment most all students were behind.  Students had missed the introduction of skills, and those who already struggled prior to the pandemic lost the ability to receive direct intervention.  The ARP ESSER funds will focus on the need to address these losses by appropriately individualizing instruction for each student.  

Summer school and literacy camps are taking place on all school campuses.  Transportation is provided so that all students, especially the subgroups are afforded the opportunity to participate.  Intervention tutoring is provided using evidence-based programs and strategies.  This tutoring is taking place during the school day and in extended-day activities.  The tutoring is provided by certified teachers during the day by retired teachers.  These same teachers and additional active teachers are providing the tutoring after-school. These teachers are participating in high-quality professional development so that they are prepared to effectively implement the interventions.  

The mental health of students cannot be overlooked.  Additional counselors are provided so that each student's social, emotional, and mental healths needs are addressed. These additional personnel ensure that counselors are available full-time for all elementary and high school students. They had to share one person before, limiting access. Other additional personnel is made available as well.  A student support specialist is also employed to support the students by helping them make connections to available community resources such as AltaPointe and other mental health services. The support specialist also serves as an academic tutor to students that need one-one-one academic support.  

Migrant students' support personnel have doubled.  Migrant liaisons assist these students in both instructional and non-instructional supports. A homeless and foster liaison is now available to assist in the identification of these students so that they can be properly served and provided resources to help them secure success.  Currently there are no EL students in the district but professional development is cosistently provided in the event an EL student enrolls.  

 

 

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.
*
The Washington County School District will administer the ARP ESSEER III Funds with all applicable statutes, regulations, program plans, and the application.  Any supplies, materials, and property purchased with the funds will be used by the students and staff of the District to address a variety of barriers.  During the planning stage, many individuals were included.  District Administration met with principals and a variety of other staff members to develop the best uses for the funds.  We also sent out surveys to gather data to determine needs and recommendations.  The priority uses for the funds to to address learning losses and to aid in the recovery from issues created by the pandemic.  Many strategies are planned through the implementation of evidence-based activities such as hiring additional teachers and counselors for the elementary schools, and to cover mental health needs.  We will use the funds to add HVAC upgrades, EL supports, tutoring, after school programs, and technology purchases.  The strategies employed are for the sole purpose of helping teachers teach and students to overcome any barriers that may prevent them from success.  The additional teachers will address the need for smaller classes that will significantly enhance elementary schools' ability to focus on reading and math instruction and help those students who are behind due to the pandemic to get caught up.  The HVAC upgrades are needed and will provide better air and circulation to our aging buildings and improve student and staff health issues that would otherwise prevent them from regular participation.  The additional staff will bridge learning gaps, and allow more class offerings to students so that all students regardless of gender, race, national origin, disability, or age to have the same opportunities.  The burden placed on our school nurses this year has been extraordinary.  They have been inundated with contact tracing, COVID-19 testing, vaccinations, protocol questions, and many other new tasks this year.  All this occurred on top of what they had already been doing.  The creation of better nursing envrionments for the sick and the  purchase of supplies will allow them to better support all students in need of medical support.  The purchase of technology items such as iPads and computers will help students generally with all their learning as they may be absent from school and will enable our transition to home-learning smoothly if that situation arises again.   
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?
*

The funds will be accounted for and tracked using the NEXTGEN accounting program.  NEXTGEN is the accounting program used in all Alabama schools.  Our district has very specific guidelines for tracking all purchases.  First of all, all purchases are need-driven as outlined in a needs assessment conducted at both the district and school level.  Puchase orders are created and sent through a multi-step approval process.  Purchase orders for materials, and supplies are presented on the district purchase order to the Federal Programs Director.  She monitors and approves all purchases that are attached to the needs of the ACIP.  Once the programmatic approval is granted, the purchase orders move to the Federal Programs Bookkeeper.  This step is the process in which the purchases are compared with the monetary line items.  If there is an approved line item in the budget, the BookKeeper places a funding code on the purchase order and completes it processing by securing the proper signataures and then sends to the vendor.  Once the items are received, the person in receipt of the items/services completes a receiving report that is forwarded to the Bookkeeper indicating it is time to pay the invoice.  The invoices are signed by the Superintendent of Education and checks are payable and send to the vendors by the CSFO and Custodian of Funds.  These steps ensure that multiple people are part of the expenditure of funds that eliminates the threat of misusing them.  

There is a follow-up evaluation report completed as a part of the ACIP to determine the impact the materials and services have on their intented purpose.  These evaluation reports are presented to the public annually at a meeting of the Washington County Board of Education.  

How will the LEA meaningfully engage with families and communities throughout the life of the ARP ESSER and other relief funds?
*

The Washington County School District believes that engaging with families and communities throughout the life of the ARP ESSER and other relief funds is a critical part of the recovery.  We feel so strongly about this vital component that funds are being used to employ a Family and Coummunity Outreach Specialist (COS).  The main goals of employing a COS and developing and outreach program it to improve learning, and strengthen families/communities by addressing school and societal needs. 

Engaging families and the community has been a need long before the pandemic began.  Unfortunately, with the unfinished learning that took place during the pandemic, engaging our stakeholders has become a necessity.  We learned when schools were closed due to the pandemic, we did not have the partnerships in place we needed to take the effective learning into the homes.  We made the best of the situation at the time.  We do not intend to ignore those lessons learned.  Our community outreach program will include opportunities for parents to learn skills necessary to be co-teachers, so that when students need help they are able to provide that support.  Partnerships that were already in place prior to the pandemic will be strenghtened.  Title I Parent meetings will be geared more specifically to student needs outlined in the parent compact than a simple informational meeting. The COS will work to find a multitude of creative ways to connect our schools, parents, and the community.  This includes newsletter, monthly parent trainings, blog postings, and informational videos.  It is our intent to have an engagement program that is well-rounded and is available to all.
