The COVID-19 pandemic has provided the district with federal funds to be used for pandemic response. We would like to have your feedback as a community member or parent for the potential use of those dollars and in regard to USD 234.
Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III (ESSER III) funds are being provided under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021, Public Law 117-2, enacted on March 11, 2021. The purpose of ESSER III is to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students by mitigating learning losses, supporting social-emotional needs, and ensuring safe in-person learning for students. We will submit an application for ESSER III funds to the Kansas Department of Education which must include input from a variety of stakeholders on how best to use these funds. Your input will impact how ESSER III funds are spent across the school district. Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback. Thank you in advance for your input and participation.
