Recovery Plan

All school districts in the State of Washington were required to submit an Academic and Student Well-Being Recovery Plan to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI). This plan is designed to show school districts’ efforts, planning, and support to address the impact COVID-19 school closures have had on students’ academics and well-being. In FWPS, this includes our immediate summer learning support and our long-term planning to accelerate scholar learning and improve scholar social and emotional health.

With a thread of equity running throughout, Federal Way Public Schools’ recovery plan is based on five major themes that have driven our planning and guided our work to develop support for all scholars:
  • Student Well-being
  • Student and Family Voice
  • Recovery and Acceleration
  • Assessment
  • Professional Learning

Our plan is informed by scholar and family voice, which has been captured through advisories with the superintendent, principals, and SOAR (Scholars Organized Against Racism) groups. Feedback has also been provided through committees and focus panels. This feedback has provided insight into scholar needs as well as what has worked during remote instruction that should be carried forward into our Recovery Plan.

Recovery Plan Phases and Timeline

The plan is divided into three phases that will begin in Summer 2021 and move forward throughout the 2021-22 school year. The three phases address our immediate, short term, and long-term plans for interventions and supports.
  • Phase 1 includes summer learning opportunities and launch of the 2021-22 school year. (submitted to OSPI by June 2021)
  • Phase 2 is built upon the work started in the first phase and includes plans for longer term support. (submitted to OSPI by November 2021)
  • Phase 3  includes planning and actions to accelerate learning and well-being and sustain long-term improvements. (submitted to OSPI spring 2022)

Components of the Plan

While using a lens of equity throughout, the FWPS recovery plan covers all components required by OSPI. All decisions and planning are run through an equity analysis tool to ensure decisions are made with that lens. These components include:
  • Academic and well-being supports for ALL, SOME, and FEW scholars (Universal Supports, Strategic Supports)
  • Diagnostic assessments to identify needs for academic and well-being supports and interventions
  • Monitoring the academic and well-being progress of scholars to measure effectiveness (Progress Monitoring)
  • Incorporating scholar and family voice in the design and implementation of the plan
  • Identifying supports for implementation, or putting the plan in action
