How schools can use ESSER funding
ESSER I, ESSER II, and ESSER III
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Department of Education has released three grants for which local education agencies (LEAs) can apply. These grants, known as ESSER I, ESSER II, and ESSER III, were authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act); the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA); and the American Rescue Plan (ARP).
ARP: ESSER III
In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) was signed into law. ARP dedicated $122 billion to the Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (ESSER) Fund. This grant is known as ESSER III. The intent and purpose of ESSER III is to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus on students. Safe and clean learning environment for students.
Districts should use safe practices for the cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting of their school campuses while allowing students to engage in classroom activities. Districts should ensure a sanitary environment for students and staff by enhanced cleaning of schools, facilities, and high-use areas.
