American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ARP ESSER): State and Local Educational Agency (LEA)/School District Plans

State and school district/Local Educational Agency (LEAs) plans for using ARP ESSER funds are an important resource for public transparency into the use of ARP ESSER funds. The Department encourages all stakeholders, including parents, families, and educators, to review their State and LEA/school district plans, and to contact State and local education officials to learn more. Links to all ARP ESSER State and LEA/school district plans and approved materials are posted below.

What Families and Communities Need to Know: Within two weeks of signing the American Rescue Plan, the Department of Education distributed $81,316,533,333.00 of ARP ESSER funds to States, two-thirds of each State’s total funding. In order to receive their remaining funding, the American Rescue Plan required States to submit and the Department to approve a plan for how the State would use ARP ESSER funds to safely re-open and provide academic and mental health supports for school communities to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. As of the end of 2021, all State Plans were approved, and all ARP ESSER funds were distributed to the States. Using the table below, you can find the plan your State submitted, the plan the Department approved, and highlights of the approved Plan.  

The Department also required States to make sure that school districts/LEAs provided plans for how they were spending their American Rescue Plan funds for the safe return to in-person instruction and a safe academic recovery. At the Department’s direction, each State was required to provide a way for families and communities to view their individual district’s plan. In the table below, you can find the link to where each State’s district/LEA plans can be found. 

Engaging with State and Local Leaders

Both States and school districts/LEAs were required to engage families, educators, representatives of students with disabilities, and a broad range of other stakeholders as they created these plans. The publication of a plan, however, should not be the end of this engagement, as school districts/LEAs are expected to adjust their plans based on the needs of students. If your State does not have your school district/LEA’s plan listed, please directly contact your school district/LEA or use the school district’s website to locate the plan. All school districts/LEAs are required to post their plans, and all States are responsible for ensuring all school district/LEA plans are posted on the State Educational Agency website.

A list of State Educational Agencies and their contact information can be found here: https://www2.ed.gov/about/contacts/state/index.html

Parents, families, educators, and communities have a deep understanding of the needs of their students. If you have questions or concerns about how your State or school district/LEA plans to use its ARP ESSER funds, the Department encourages you to engage with your local school district/LEA. While the Department of Education is using its full authority to oversee and monitor the effective use of these funds, the voices of local communities are critical to ensuring that funds are used to address the specific needs of students in your community.

* Award Amount: Two-thirds of the ARP ESSER awards were allocated to states on March 24, 2021. States were subsequently required to complete and submit an ARP ESSER State plan to receive the additional one-third of ARP ESSER funds upon Department approval.
