To help fund a new Social Emotional Learning (“SEL”) Interventionist who will support the school leadership team, intentionally integrating social and emotional learning opportunities throughout the school program. The SEL Interventionist will provide leadership in the development of SEL programmatic components including the daily advisory period, and will assist students in developing a foundation in knowledge that helps them to understand and overcome academic challenges in order to excel during middle school and beyond. The mission of CQA is to prepare students for success in education, in the workforce and in the community through a school that integrates literacy, standards-based academics, and culturally-responsive support services. They will serve 300 fifth through seventh grade students in 2014-2015, and at full-scale they will be a K-12 system serving nearly 1,000 students.
