BUSD ESSER III Funding Stakeholder Input Survey
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an undeniably difficult situation for many in our BUSD community and in our nation over the past 18 months. While the return to in-person instruction this school year is clear evidence of progress, we know that many of our students still require a significant amount of attention to address academic learning loss, social-emotional needs, and safety as they re-engage in the traditional school setting.
BUSD will be applying for federal funding made available through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) program. This funding will last for three years, and it is intended to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and to address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students. ESSER funding must be used to meet needs that have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic.
We would like to ask you to complete a short survey as district stakeholders. Your responses will help us to finalize the major areas of need for which we will use "ESSER III" funding in BUSD.
The survey begins below, and responses will be collected through Friday, October 1, 2021 at 11:59P.M. We thank you for your feedback and support!

1. Any activity authorized under ESEA,
Individuals with Disabilities Act,
Adult Education and Family Literacy Act,
Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act,
