American Rescue Plan - Elementary and Secondary Schools Emergency Relief Fund (ARP-ESSER)

ARP ESSER funds are emergency relief funds allocated to districts to address the impacts of COVID-19 on students. In Pennsylvania, the allocations were awarded to districts and charter schools following the same funding formula as Title I-A.  In Pennsylvania, districts and charter schools are required to reserve 20% of the allocation to address the academic impact of lost instructional time.

ESSER Fund (ARP-ESSER) 7% Set Asides

Districts must use their ESSER Fund 7% Set Asides as follows:
      • At least 30% must be targeted to social, emotional, or mental health supports to students.
      • At least 10% must be targeted to professional development and technical assistance to educators and school staff to address the social, emotional, and mental health needs of students.
      • At least 8% must be targeted to reading support and improvement for students.
If you have any feedback or questions regarding the District’s use of ESSER Funds, please email the Education Committee at [email protected]
