ESSER III Expenditure Plan
In response to the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the U.S. Congress passed the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, signed into law on March 11, 2021. This federal stimulus funding is the third act of federal relief in response to COVID-19, following the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed into law on March 27, 2020, and the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (CRRSA Act) signed into law on December 27, 2020.
ESSER III fund allocations are based on an LEA’s share of funding received under Title I, Part A in fiscal year (FY) 2020–21. Campbell Union High School District's estimated allocation is $4,611,132. An LEA may use ESSER III funds for any eligible expenditures from March 24, 2021, through September 30, 2024. All expenditures, including reimbursements, must be linked to an allowable use.
LEAs that receive ESSER III funds are required to develop a plan for how they will use ESSER III funds to, at a minimum, address students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs, as well as the opportunity gaps that existed before, and were exacerbated by, the COVID-19 pandemic. The plan is required to address the following:
- The extent to which and how the funds will be used to implement prevention and mitigation strategies that are, to the greatest extent practicable, consistent with the most recent CDC guidance on reopening schools to continuously and safely open and operate schools for in-person learning.
- How the LEA will use the minimum of 20% of funds it reserves for learning loss to address the academic impact of lost instructional time through implementing evidence-based interventions, such as summer learning or summer enrichment, extended day, comprehensive afterschool programs, or extended school year programs.
- How the LEA will spend its remaining ESSER III funds consistent with the allowable uses.
- How the LEA will ensure that the interventions it implements, including but not limited to the interventions to address learning loss, will respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of all students, and particularly those students disproportionately impacted by the COVID–19 pandemic, including students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students.
