Systems for Student Success Action Planning Grant
|Funds Allocated:||$177,000 (State)|
|Purpose: This grant provides districts with a six-month opportunity to review and analyze data on academic performance, school climate, family engagement, learner engagement, behavior, and other areas to identify where and how to target improvement. It is intended to highlight the impact we can have on student achievement when we focus systemically on the intersection of academic performance and "non-academic" barriers to learning.|
|Number of Proposals Received:||12|
|Number of Proposals Recommended:||9|
|Number of Proposals Not Recommended:||3|
|Result of Funding: Each participating district will be expected to:|
- Participate in a facilitated self-assessment, data analysis and prioritization process. This will involve a leadership/planning team and 2-3 district-based meetings designed to dovetail with district/school improvement planning.
- Collect and analyze data that captures the "conditions for learning" within the district/schools (e.g., school climate, academic engagement, student support, social emotional learning and family engagement). This data will be used to inform current and future planning.
- Participate in two cross-district meetings with other grantees participating in this project.
- Develop an action plan that describes specific systems and strategies to target high priority barriers to learning.
