All student in Kingman USD have been adversely impacted by the pandemic, therefore, all students will have access to out-of-school time interventions and enrichment opportunities. Students will be assigned opportunities based on their academic data and feedback from student-centered teams that identify needs. Students that belong to unique populations will be given additional, alternative options including one-on-one targeted tutoring and social emotional development. While it is not necessarily funded in ESSER III, the district's social emotional learning initiative is funded in ESSER II. Feedback from the program led to the creation of the Attendance Teams that will comprehensively address chronic absenteeism and by default the learning loss associated with it. Baseline data will be established in an effort to develop SMART goals related to these interventions, and quarterly tracking of progress will occur through the student-centered teams.
