Q2

With the significant gaps in performance between our recently arrived, older Latino students and white and Asian peers, the results from this program as a comprehensive intervention strategy appear impressive. Knowing that our schools that have the highest numbers of students from this population are in greatest need of supplemental, unique, social emotional as well as academic resources to close those gaps, I would like to know the status of similar supports or other models at other highly impacted schools (Gaithersburg, Watkins Mill, Northwood, et al). If they don't have this level of afterschool intervention, is it possible with this budget to expand this support to these schools? It appears that 21st Century federal funding is being used for this programming. Knowing that our ESOL numbers have gone down, perhaps the dollars that have been saved on staffing can go to this expansion. How many total students do we have in this category? Are we reaching as many of them as we can? How can we reach more of them? As we know, very sadly, too many of these students who have fallen through the cracks have ended up in dangerous and dire circumstancesI would also like to know if this program supports non-Latino students who may be in similarly fragile circumstances that are barriers to their reaching their potential. As our stated commitment is to closing gaps in achievement, it seems our greatest priority with funding should be addressing the widest gaps with the strategies that have been evaluated and appear to be the most effective. As we are also striving to not isolate our students during the school day, afterschool support/interventions (which seem to be one of the biggest differences between well-resourced households and those in poverty) would appear to make the most sense.
