CRES Connect LSGT Grant
In 2018, the Clarke County School District set aside grant funds to distribute to LSGTs to create innovative programs that build the capacity of schools and communities to support the achievement, success, and well-being of children in alignment of one or more of the District's focus areas of literacy, numeracy, and social-emotional development.
Grant Budget: $24,455
Cleveland Road will focus on numeracy, literacy, and social-emotional development for students. This will be done by adjusting school curriculum to incorporate community involvement and hands-on/engaging units. Units will integrate science, social studies, literacy, and math. Furthermore, CRES Connect will focus implementing project-based activities and cooperative learning to allow students a chance at working alongside peers, faculty and staff. Units will involve service learning opportunities in the community. Training for staff will include Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) implementation. AVID is a college readiness program designed to help students develop the skills they need to be successful in college. The program places special emphasis on growing writing, critical thinking, teamwork, organization and reading skills. The goals of CRES Connect include improving proficiency in literacy and numeracy to 65% for grades 3-5. Students scoring higher than a 35 on on the Universal Behavior Screener will show a 25% decrease by April 2018.
