Description of At-Risk Funding Plans

In the school year 2018-2019, approximately 42 percent (474 students in grades Pre-K3-12) of E.L. Haynes students were identified as “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 that a similar proportion of our student body will be identified as at-risk for the school year 2019-20. E.L. Haynes plans to use this at-risk funding to help support multiple programs that target our most vulnerable student populations, including a robust wellness program that provides direct services to students from social workers, counselors, and therapists; year-round intersession programming during October, February, June, and July which provide students academic support, enrichment, and a credit recovery program at the high school; and an extended day program at our elementary and middle school campuses.

Help us create a more just and kind world.
