Fund Code: 209
Wraparound Zone Initiative (Increase)

Total Increase Amount: $48,000 (Federal)
Funds Requested: N/A
Purpose: the Wraparound Zone Initiative seeks to develop district and school systems to strategically address students' physical, social, and emotional health needs to promote academic success.
Number of Proposals Received: N/A
Number of Proposals Recommended: N/A
Number of Proposals Not Recommended: N/A
Result of Funding: the funding increase will support three additional schools in Worcester to implement the Wraparound Zone Initiative. The district has already been approved to implement in four schools.

Each district will implement the following four functions of the Wraparound model: 1) Each participating school creates a climate and culture that promotes positive social, emotional, physical, and intellectual health and growth for students, resulting in a new standard of practice understood and practiced by every member of the school community; 2) Each participating school implements a proactive system that identifies student needs in key academic and non-academic areas, and connects them to universal supports and targeted interventions; 3) Each participating district integrates a range of resources from within the schools and the larger community to form a robust coalition of organizations and agencies that convenes on a regular basis. The range of services includes prevention, enrichment, early intervention, and intensive/crisis response services; 4) Each participating district develops district-level systems to support the communication, collaboration, evaluation, and continuous improvement of the Wraparound Zone Initiative.

Participating districts will receive $16,000 in Massachusetts' Race to the Top funds for each participating school. Districts will also be permitted to allocate $99,000 in local Race to the Top funds to each participating school.

Grant awards range from $32,000 to $112,000.
