On January 18th, 2022, the U.S. Department of Education announced that every state education agency (SEA) received approval of their American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) plan before the end of December 2021. That’s $122 billion of ARP ESSER funds that school districts across the country are using to address the urgent needs of their schools with ventilation improvements, staff hiring and retention, mental health services, high-dosage tutoring programs, after-school and summer learning partnerships, and more.
This year, summer learning is going to be especially important as students are beginning to catch up and build momentum after years of disrupted in-person learning. How can you use these ESSER resources to build summer learning opportunities for your students so they can avoid the “summer slide” and continue to stay engaged when the school year ends?
This funding resource guide helps navigate ESSER and other Federal Funding sources while highlighting how Future Genius can help you secure that funding through programming that directly correlates to the initiatives of those funding sources.
