American Rescue Plan ESSER Survey
Dear Elm Creek Families,

Elm Creek Schools has the opportunity to receive additional funds as part of the American Rescue Plan. These funds are in excess of $250,000 and can do a lot for our school. There are very specific guidelines to how we can spend the money. Below is a survey and information on the guidelines.

American Rescue Plan ESSER Survey

Under the American Rescue Plan, the school district will receive federal funds to help deal with the impact of COVID-19. These funds may be used for a wide range of activities. Regulations require the school district to seek stakeholder input from school district parents, students, staff, public, and others.

The United States Department of Education has released a Fact Sheet describing the way school districts can use their ARP funds:
