In response to the economic outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, Congress passed three bills that provided immediate and direct financial assistance to state and local educational agencies through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds.  These funds were provided to support areas with the greatest need, where the academic and non-academic components of school districts had the most significant impact due to COVID-19.  As additional funding was provided, the funds were intended to support state and local school districts’ efforts to safely reopen schools, address significant gaps in learning, and support measures of implementation that will continue to reduce the effects of COVID-19 on students and families.

ESSER Funding Transparency

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act was signed into law by President Joe Biden on March 11, 2021, to speed up the United States recovery from the economic and health effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing recession.  ARP ESSER funds will allow districts to take additional steps to safely reopen schools for in-person instruction and keep them open, and to address the disruptions to teaching and learning resulting from the pandemic. Gilmer County Schools welcomes feedback on the use of the ESSER funds.
