Happy Valley School will wholistically address the academic and SEL impact, especially for students disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 through tutoring, summer school, reading intervention and introducing a new SEL program (Hallway Heroes) for students.
Happy Valley School will monitor the effectiveness of in-school interventions and after school interventions through benchmark testing, both formative and summative assessments, teacher input and regular PLC data review meetings. Baseline data is collected and evaluated to assess instructional needs of students and to provide specific intervention strategies to reduce impact of lost instructional time. Student attendance and review of grades will also be used to monitor academic progress.
In addition to the academic intervention support, an SEL program is designed to respond to the social-emotional and mental health impact on all students and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Students will periodically be administered a survey after intervention activities to assess how our program helps the social/emotional needs of our students. The program is designed to provide students with strategies and resources to support their needs. Survey results will be shared with teachers, nurse, and administrator to assess overall effectiveness of program.
