In 2020 and 2021, the US Congress passed three stimulus bills referred to as the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund.
The purpose of ESSER Funds in general is to award subgrants to local educational agencies (LEAs) to address the impact that COVID-19 is having on elementary and secondary schools. Of the total amount allocated to an LEA from the State’s ARP ESSER III award, the LEA must reserve at least 20% of funds to address learning loss through the implementation of evidence-based interventions and ensure that those interventions respond to students’ social, emotional, and academic needs and address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on underrepresented student subgroups. Remaining LEA funds may be used for a wide range of activities to address needs arising from the pandemic.
The following information is provided to demonstrate how Avon Schools is using ESSER funds.
