ECS Reopening Plan and ARP ESSER grant Information

We are collecting feedback and requests from our community on how we spend our remaining ARP-ESSER funds.  In 2020 and 2021, Congress authorized the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education to award Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds to public schools as part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP), referred collectively as ARP-ESSER. You can read the details about the grants from the federal government here. Schools are required to post essential information about how they used the funds and implement and periodically review a reopening plan and gather input from stakeholders. The New York State Education Department provides additional information, including the allowable us the funds:
  • Supporting the safe return to in-person instruction and continuity of services;
  • Addressing the impact of lost instructional time through the implementation of evidence-based interventions, such as summer learning or summer enrichment, extended day, comprehensive afterschool programs, or extended school year programs;
  • Ensuring that such interventions respond to students’ academic, social, and emotional needs; and
  • Addressing the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus on economically disadvantaged students, children with disabilities, English learners, racial and ethnic minorities, migrant students, students experiencing homelessness, and children and youth in foster care.
