ESSER Funding and Planning Requirements for Districts
- The American Rescue Plan/ESSER III provides $122B for elementary and secondary education.
- Funds must address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on underrepresented student groups including English learners.
- Twenty percent of these funds must be used to mitigate learning loss through evidence-based interventions that respond to students’ social, emotional, and academic needs.
- Effective district plans include data to develop plans to support English learners and to monitor their progress moving forward.
“..depending on how states and districts adapt in the coming year, schools could emerge from this crisis having built stronger and more resilient systems on a foundation of equity for ELs and immigrant-background students.”Migration Institute Policy
