Federal Grants: American Rescue Plan (ESSER III) 

Winthrop Public Schools has chosen to obligate the majority of our most recent federal grant funds to providing additional supports for our students. Through discussions with our Back to School  Committee and the Administrative team,  survey data from our staff and teachers, along with recent NWEA assessment data we have chosen to focus on evidence-based strategies to help mitigate the negative impact that COVID-19 has had on our students' social, emotional, and academic wellbeing. 

Outlined Projects:

In addition, we would like to expand our local knowledge-base by providing training opportunities for at least 1 district employee. This would help us to build our resources so that we can keep our system updated on our own, as well as be able to prepare for future applications for our SIS if remote instruction were to become necessary again.
