ARP-ESSER Funding Plan

Introduction

The 2021-22 enacted state budget includes language requiring local education agencies, such as school districts, that receive funding from the Federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund allocated by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to post on its website a plan summarizing how these funds will be spent.

New York has been allocated nearly $9 billion in funds, with a minimum of $8.09 billion (90 percent) going to local education agencies, including public schools. The Marcellus Central School District’s Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSAA) allocation totals $1,403,395 and its American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) allocation totals $1,751,789.

How can these funds be used?

CRRSAA allocations may be used for hiring new staff and avoiding layoffs, addressing learning loss, preparing schools for reopening, and testing, repairing, and upgrading projects to improve air quality in school buildings.

ARPA allocations may be used in the following ways:

  • $1,053,242 may be used for hiring new staff and avoiding layoffs, addressing learning loss, preparing schools for reopening, and testing, repairing, and upgrading projects to improve air quality in school buildings.

  • $100,002 may be used for summer enrichment programs to address learning loss

  • $100,002 may be used for comprehensive after school enrichment to address learning loss

  • $499,996 may be used for other activities to address learning loss by supporting the implementation of evidence-based interventions, such as summer learning or summer enrichment, extended day, comprehensive afterschool programs, or extended school year programs.  School districts shall ensure that such interventions respond to students’ academic, social, and emotional needs and address the disproportionate impact of the coronavirus on low-income students, children with disabilities, English learners, migrant students, students experiencing homelessness, and children in foster care.

Districts are also required to prioritize spending on non-recurring expenses in the following areas: 

  • Safely returning students to in-person instruction 

  • Maximizing in-person instruction time

  • Operating schools and meeting the needs of students

  • Purchasing educational  technology

  • Addressing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on students, including the impacts of interrupted instruction and learning loss and the impacts on low-income students, children with disabilities, English language learners, and students experiencing homelessness

  • Implementing evidence-based strategies to meet students' social, emotional, mental health, and academic needs

  • Offering evidence-based summer, afterschool, and other extended learning and enrichment programs

  • Supporting early childhood education
