Learning Loss Plan Feedback Form
Spring-Ford's Learning Loss Plan was presented on November 15th, 2021 to the School Board for approval, which includes activities such as summer programming, tutoring,  and an intervention program for math and reading, all of which were funded by ARP ESSER grant funding.

As part of the grant program, we are given specific parameters for how this money can be spent. Part of the requirements include programs such as Reading Intervention, Summer Enrichment Programs, student SEL, Professional Development on SEL, and After School Programs. 

We are asking for staff and parent input so that we can better understand the areas where you may be seeing a need to support your student(s) as we return to a normal school year. Please click here to provide your feedback.
