RSD Learning Recovery & Extended Plan - Summer 2021 as of 3/30/21

The Ravenna School District will identify students affected by the pandemic in terms of their learning progress and provide an opportunity for summer learning recovery this summer.  The building administrators and teachers through BLT and TBT will review by grade level, each student’s learning progress.  The team will utilize a data decision making approach to determine groups of students who will benefit the most from a summer learning recovery program.

Student data used consists of, but not limited to STAR data, state assessment scores, academic grades, attendance data and student IEP/504 plans/goals. In addition, classroom (in person/remote) observations made by the teachers and others who have worked with the student will be used. The team will communicate with the students and their families to share their concerns and emphasize the importance of attending the summer learning recovery program.  PBIS Strategies (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports- evidence-based three-tiered framework to improve and integrate all of the data, systems, and practices affecting student outcomes every day) which is used during the academic school year will be incorporated into the summer program.  Barriers such as food and transportation will be provided.  Breakfast and Lunch will be provided.  Transportation to and from the district will be provided. 

Summer Learning Recovery Program:

Tentatively (2)  4-week/4 days a week are being considered: June 7 – July 2 and July 12 -August 6.

Academic needs will be met with prioritizing hiring our own teachers and outside district teachers (if needed) for summer school who will focus on high priority standards using teacher based Google Classroom lessons and other materials/resources determined by the teachers and building team. The Class of 2021 who need to meet diploma requirements will continue with their individual plan/credit recovery during summer session(s) with the goal of completing requirements or gaining ground on completion of requirements especially those with major credit deficiencies.

Administrators will be hired to oversee the elementary, middle and high school summer programs. 

Social emotional needs will be met with hiring our own school counselors and utilizing social agencies such as Children’s Advantage for individual, group and overall programming.

Reed Memorial Library, Ohio Means Jobs, and Ravenna Parks & Recreation are some of the partnerships we will continue working together with during the summer learning program.

A possible Service Project may be implemented to encourage the importance of service learning Students and staff will determine the project and give back to the school/ community- “Pay It Forward”.

The Ravenna School District Summer Learning Plan aligns with the district goals and the work of the DLT, BLT, TBT: Our District Leadership Team OIP Goals consist of Mathematics and ELA and School Climate.  It is our hope that students will experience a smooth transition from this summer learning program to the 2021-2022 academic year particularly in Math and ELA and regain that sense of belonging and normalcy with support, especially our remote learners who have had little social interaction with staff and students. Our plan also aligns with our Graduation Plan. Ravenna High School Counselors have worked together with the students, families and staff to ensure that each student has a graduation plan.  The 3 E’s Program is in place at Ravenna HS and work is in motion at the middle school to reach every student. Each student with guidance will choose a pathway of an “E”: Employed, Enlisted or Enrolled.

Our plan aligns with the content standards necessary to transition to the 2021-22 academic year with a strong foundation.

The RSD Equity and Inclusion Task Force has chosen Assistant High School Principal JaCari Parks, School Board Member Pamela Nation-Calhoun and Pastor Pat Dennison to identify and secure a third party facilitator.

The Equity and Inclusion Task Force has been working with the community to create a sustainable, systemic plan that will actively create awareness, engage students, school and community with more focus on diversity, equity and inclusion.  This facilitator will assist in taking the work accomplished thus far and further evolve it to deepen its insight and impact.  Once the facilitator has been secured, the task force will reconvene and continue its work.  Our next update will be coming in April.
