School Finances

Description of At-Risk Funding Plans

In the school year 2020-21, approximately 43 percent (517 students Pre-K to 12th grade) of E.L. Haynes students were designated “at-risk” and, therefore, the school received funds for those students in accordance with the D.C. Uniform Per Student Funding Formula (UPSFF). E.L. Haynes currently projects a similar proportion of our student body will be designated as at-risk for the upcoming year (2021-22). E.L. Haynes plans to use this at-risk funding to help support multiple programs that target our most vulnerable student populations, including extended day and year-round programming at our elementary and middle school campuses; a robust wellness program that provides direct services to students from social workers, counselors, and therapists; reading intervention and curriculum; support for our college office to help students prepare for, and transition to post-secondary life; and, other investments in social and emotional learning (SEL) support for students including trauma-informed training for staff and a student emergency fund for student and family needs.
