that the School Committee accept and approve the grant award below in the amount and for the period indicated.

FY21 Integrating SEL into Academic Subjects for the period of December 9, 2020 to August 31, 2021, in the amount of $10,000.00. Grant SC21168.

Description: This grant to the High School Extension Program will support a team of teachers (in

history, arts, library, technology, social work, and health) in creating a new unit that integrates

Civics, Service Learning, and Social Emotional Learning standards. After receiving training in

developing podcasts, students will interview their peers and other community members to explore

the impact that the public health crisis and the movements for racial justice have had on our

community. In the process of carrying out this service learning project, they will intentionally focus

on strengthening SEL skills as they develop and share their podcasts with the community at large.

This grant will cover teacher stipends, laptops and training on podcasts.
