WCS is seeking input from all stakeholders on plan to utilize federal ESSER funds Input appreciated

On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (“ARP” or “the Act”) was signed into law by President Biden. This $1.9 trillion coronavirus rescue package was designed to facilitate the United States’ recovery from the devastating economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Act sets aside $122 billion in block grants to State educational agencies and school districts to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the nation’s students. These funds will be provided to schools via the American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Relief (“ARP ESSER”) Fund, under Section 2001 of the Act.
