UPDATE 8/6/2021: The ARP Act also includes supplemental IDEA funding for 2021-22, which needs to be tracked separately from the ongoing IDEA formula funds.
UPDATE 4/2/2021: The February 2021 American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) created a third round of funding, ESSER III, which will also need to be tracked separately and has an additional year beyond ESSER I & II.
UPDATE 2/2/2021: The December 2020 Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA) created a second round of ESSER funding, which we are calling ESSER II. The original March 2020 CARES Act funds will be referred to as ESSER I.
The U.S. Dept. of Education is requiring that ESSER II funds be tracked separately from ESSER I. Districts are not required to provide equitable services to private schools under ESSER II; they are being funded under a separate appropriation. ESSER II includes a focus on measuring and addressing learning disruption, particularly among those students disproportionately affected by the coronavirus and school closures, and there will be specific reporting requirements related to this focus.
