2022-23 ESSER III/School Innovation and Improvement Plan 

London Towne ES

Region 5

Wiatta Padmore, Principal

Background: The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER III) is a federal grant which requires that spending be used in specific areas.  Part of the Fairfax County Public Schools spending plan identifies funding to be used for Unfinished Learning and Student Academic and Social, Emotional, Mental Health (Wellness) Needs.  Schools have been given funding allocations to support the academic and wellness needs of students.  Schools are required to create plans in English Language Arts, Mathematics, and Wellness highlighting the strategies they will use to support these areas using their ESSER III funding.  These strategies are shown below.


ESSER III English Language Arts Strategies

Outcome: Ensure students are making sufficient progress to be on grade level in English Language Arts.

Goal:  By the end of 2022-2023 school year, 100% of all students will meet their typical growth target on Pals/iReady/VGA.

Strategy 1:  All students will develop oral language skills through explicit language instruction and opportunities for talk in both the reading and writing block.

Strategy 2:  All students will receive daily, systematic, explicit instruction in phonological awareness, phonics, and morphology.


ESSER III Mathematics Strategies

Outcome: Ensure students are making sufficient progress to be on grade level in Mathematics.

Goal:  By the end of the 2022-2023 school year, 100% of students will meet their growth target using iReady/EMAS/VGA assessment.

Strategy 1:  Students will have daily opportunities to share, listen, honor, and critique each other’s ideas to clarify and deepen mathematical understandings and language during the math block.

Strategy 2:  Students will show mathematical understanding through oral responses, problem-solving rich tasks, exit tickets and assessments. Teachers will use these data pieces to inform in-the-moment discourse and plan future lessons.


ESSER III Wellness Strategies

Outcome: Ensure students feel safe, included, and supported in the school environment.

Goal:  By the end of the 2022-2023 school year, our school will utilize Morning Meeting and the 3 CASEL practices to effectively teach self-management skills, increasing schoolwide scores on the self-management topic of the SEL Screener by 10% from 39-49 percent favorable.

Strategy 1:  When adults develop foundational knowledge regarding the rationale for required practices and tools to support their implementation, students will have access and opportunities to engage in Tier 1 practices to support their academic and social behaviors, supporting student mental wellness.

Strategy 2:  Students will receive tier 2/3 targeted or intensive interventions that support specific SEL needs.

Strategy 3:  Students will have increased opportunities to use strategies around mental wellness when the school provides information to help support family involvement in school wide wellness activities.


ESSER III Portrait of a Graduate (PoG) Strategies

Outcome: All students will complete a POG Presentation of Learning (POL) by 2025-26.

Goal:  By the end of SY 2022-23, 100% of students will report on a student survey that they have created a personal goal, reflected on and described how feedback helped them make progress toward their goal (GD&R).

Strategy 1:  Collaborative teams will align content knowledge with POG attributes and skills to allow students to practice and utilize these skills along their learning journey.

Strategy 2:  All students will have access to a variety of assessment types which may include student-led assessment practices of goal-setting, feedback, and reflection.
