McLean County Schools Community Input - ESSER Funding
On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act was signed into law. The US Department of Education is providing an additional $121.9 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III Fund). These grants will be awarded across each state to provide local educational agencies with emergency relief funds to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on elementary and secondary schools across the nation. Districts must reserve at least 20% of their ARP ESSER money to measure and address the impact of lost learning time with evidence-based interventions. Those interventions must respond to students’ academic, social, emotional and mental health needs.

New in this round of funding is a requirement for school districts to include “meaningful consultation” with stakeholders in their spending plans.

McLean County Schools is seeking feedback from parents, students, employees, and community members to assist in developing its plan, and specifically the use of these funds. Stakeholders wishing to participate in this process should complete the district’s survey by July 16, 2021 or attend a public forum at 11:30 before our July 13, 2021 Board of Education luncheon.
