On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act. The ARP Act includes funding for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER III) fund that allows state and local education agencies to take additional steps to safely reopen schools for in-person learning and keep them open. It is also used to address disruptions to teaching and learning resulting from the pandemic. The information below is a preview of Gresham Barlow School District’s preliminary plans for the ESSER III expenditures.
