Recommendation Information

That Superintendent's Recommendation #21-302, Grant Award, be adopted as follows: that the School Committee accept and approve the grant award in the amount and for the period indicated:

Integrating SEL into Academic Subjects (SCC22168) in the amount of $10,000.00 for the period of September 1, 2021, to August 31, 2022

Description: This grant to the High School Extension Program will fund year two of a project in which a team of teachers in history, arts, library, technology, social work, and health have designed and now will refine and implement a new unit called Hindsight 20/20 that will integrate Civics, Service Learning, and Social-Emotional Learning standards. After receiving training in podcast development, students will interview their peers and other community members to explore the impact that the public health crisis and the movement 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. The grant will also fund materials for the class and field trips to service learning sites.
