American Rescue Plan (ESSER III): Funds Use Plan
In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) was signed into law. ARP included $122 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds for school districts across the country. We anticipate that District 64 will receive $1,416,230 in ESSER III funding. The District 64 Strategic Plan identifies our priorities through 2025-26. In addition, prior to the start of this school year, the District sought survey feedback from school and community stakeholders. Priorities identified include 1) advancing student academic achievement and social-emotional growth, and 2) continued support for the health and safety of students, staff, and educators in response to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Please note that these numbers are estimates and will be finalized as the budget for the 2022-2023 school year is completed.
