Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) III

The purpose of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) III Fund is to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impacts of COVID-19 on the nation’s students by addressing students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs. Below, please find a link which includes information for how the Brockton Public Schools intends to utilize funds received through ESSER III.


Community Input

In fall 2021, the district administered a community survey in which participants were asked to share the areas they'd want the district to allocate ESSER dollars toward addressing. We've included the responses in the link below.

Additionally, the Brockton School Committee discussed ESSER funds in multiple public meetings. We've included links to those meetings below.
