In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) act was signed into law, dedicating funds for K-12 schools through Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (ESSER) III funds. As a result, Park County School District #6 is eligible to receive $5.9 million in one-time federal funds.
The purpose of these funds is to help maintain safe and effective operations of our schools and address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on learning and student social-emotional well-being with at least 20% of the funds used to address learning loss, mental health, and student well-being.
Park County School District #6 is in the initial phase of applying for these funds. We are seeking feedback on how the district should spend these funds once they have been awarded. Please provide your feedback by completing this short survey. Your input is extremely valuable.
