ESSER funding programs

With extensive stakeholder input and engagement, we've developed plans for the use of ESSER funds. These funds will be used to help address the significant impact on student learning caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Academic Acceleration Plan

ARP Act ESSER III

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) ACT of 2021 dedicated funds to the Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (ESSER) grant. The intent of this grant is to provide education funding to address needs from the COVID-19 pandemic and support the safe reopening and operation of schools.

Two plans have been developed. These plans are linked below and will be reviewed and revised (if necessary) every 6-months. Stakeholders are invited to review the plans and provide input.

Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan

This plan provides details about procedures and safety requirements that have been created for the well-being of students, staff and visitors.
