What is ARP ESSER III funding?
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary Emergency Relief (ESSER) is a multi-year grant from the federal government designed to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and to maintain safe school operations during the recovery phase of the pandemic.
How did the District develop the ESSER III Use of Funds Plan?
The District utilized an online survey to collect feedback from staff, students, parents, and other tri-lakes area community members. Based on stakeholder feedback, a report on ESSER III was provided to the Board of Education (BOE) regarding recommended uses of ESSER III funding.
The Use of Funds plan was developed subsequent to BOE feedback and will focus on four main areas:
- Academic Learning Loss (required to be at least 20% of ESSER III expenditures)
- Social Emotional Supports
- Health & Safety Needs
- Other Allowable Expenses
