Lorton Station ES Region 3
Francis Legagneur Ed. D, 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.

- Provide PD: components of the literacy block, Science of Reading basics, and phonemic awareness/phonics (during CLTs, job embedded)
- Provide Tier 2 instruction as preventative intervention that targets the underlying difficulty impacting the student’s progress in literacy.
