COVID RECOVERY PLAN

Lynn Public Schools Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER III) Allocation Plan

Overview
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021, Public Law 117-2, was enacted on March 11, 2021. The ARP Act provides additional funding for school districts to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Education portion of ARP is known as the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER III or ARP ESSER) Fund. The purpose of the ESSER III fund is to support the safe reopening and sustaining safe operations of schools while meeting students' academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Lynn Public Schools received an allocation of $42,106,523 to be spent through August 2024.  Therefore, this will be a multi-year plan for anticipated activities. A full scope of requirements can be found here: https://www.doe.mass.edu/federalgrants/esser/

Context
The Lynn Public Schools (LPS) is the Commonwealth’s fifth largest district, serving 16,317 scholars. Our 25 schools service a wonderfully racially and linguistically diverse student population.  Our diversity is a point of pride.  Our student population is 66 percent Latino, 16 percent white, 11 percent black, and 8 percent Asian. In addition, 30 percent of our students are English learners, 17 percent are students with disabilities, and 58 percent are low-income. 
The district has a fully enforceable strategic plan in place and has worked diligently to move forward in achieving each of the four objectives therein.  The unfortunate experience of the global pandemic has exacerbated many of the challenges the strategic plan was designed to address.  Fortunately, with the Student Opportunity Act (SOA), state law designed to provide seven years of increased funding to address longstanding disparities in performance among students of color, English learners, and students with disabilities.  With the increased funding the district proposed four areas of focus:

  • Better accommodating and responding to the social emotional needs of students
  • Improving special education supports by deepening the existing inclusion model, reducing caseloads and the provision of ongoing professional development particularly on Universal Design for Learning.
  • Improving services for ELs by building on the existing inclusion model, expanding social and emotional supports at the secondary level, maintaining EL student to English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher ratios (given projected increases), and the provision of focused, district-wide professional development.
  • Creating additional opportunities for enrichment for students, while also creating common planning time for teachers at the elementary level.

These areas of focus will continue to be supported by SOA funding.   ESSER III funding can enhance these areas of focus and other critical areas of need caused or worsened by the pandemic.

Reopening Survey - July 2020
Our goal in conducting these surveys is to ensure that all students have high-quality learning experiences and that families have everything they need. During this difficult time, we want to ensure that we are responsive to the most critical needs of our families and soliciting input for our plans going forward. It is very important to hear from LPS families about which supports should continue and those that should be improved or added. Our surveys are an important opportunity to help us understand your experiences and needs during this time and will help with our planning. Thank you in advance for taking the time to respond.
