General Operations and Fiscal Health
This category includes expenditures that directly impact overall operations and fiscal reporting of the district. These funds ensure the district is in compliance with legal obligations and reporting and fiscal assurances are met.
Staff Retention and Recruitment
To maintain the operation of educational services, the district used funds to recruit and retain staffing.
Physical Health and Safety
These funds were used to strengthen COVID prevention and mitigation practices that align with CDC guidance. This includes the purchase of cleaning and sanitation supplies, personal protective equipment (PPE), professional development and equipment for nurses, and air filtration systems. These purchases allowed schools to safely transition to in-person instruction.
Social Emotional Learning
To support the social and psychological health of RSD students and staff, plans were created to increase the district's capacity to provide meaningful SEL services. This was done by hiring additional counselors and social workers, providing professional development on recognizing and supporting students' social and emotional needs, and creating safe and welcoming spaces for staff, students, and families.
Virtual Programs and Enrollment Loss
Digital learning became a priority to continue providing educational opportunities for RSD students and stay connected to the community even if students lived outside of the district's boundaries. This includes online learning management systems and the RSD Online Academy which was created to support those who may not be able to return to in-person classes.
Technological equipment needed to be updated and/or purchased to provide an effective digital learning environment and ensure equitable access across the district. This includes strengthening district technology infrastructure and physical technology such as webcams and routers.
Student Academic Growth
Measures were taken to support the continued academic growth of students attending the district. Additional learning opportunities were provided in the form of Extended Day Programing and Summer School as well as the acquisition of intervention resources. Students were given more individualized attention through providing smaller class sizes and professional development opportunities for staff. Each school site was allotted funds to determine how to best meet the educational needs of their communities.
