WHAT IS ESSER III?
The American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (“ARP ESSER”) Fund, authorized under the American Rescue Plan (“ARP”) Act of 2021, provides nearly $122 billion to States to support the Nation’s schools in safely reopening and sustaining safe operations of schools while meeting the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of students. In order to receive funds, school districts must develop a plan that outlines how it intends to address students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs, as well as the opportunity gaps that previously existed and were exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan must be informed by feedback from district stakeholders, including BPS parents/guardians.
