*What are ESSER funds? Congress recently approved the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, which includes unprecedented assistance for Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER). ESSER funds help address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students’ recovery from the learning loss, emotional distress and isolation as a result of COVID-19. Approved uses of funds include summer and supplemental after school programs for students and in-school and summer learning opportunities (onsite or virtual). Ask your principal, director or grants administrator for more information on ESSER funds.
