艾可直播 is committed to a strong start in the fall of 2021. We know we鈥檒l face academic gaps together with our students. We have been preparing through the course of this year to improve our Elementary Program model and establish acceleration plans for next year to target learning loss. These improvements were partially funded through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act鈥檚 first installment of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. 艾可直播 will also benefit from ESSER II funded by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act and ESSER III funded by the most recent American Rescue Plan (ARP). In total, 艾可直播 stands to receive nearly $187 million in post-pandemic aid to support our schools, students and educators.

CURRENT USE OF FUNDS AND SAFE RETURN TO IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION & CONTINUITY OF SERVICES PLANS

Thank you to the thousands of families, staff, students, and community members who shared their feedback or provided public comment on our draft plans during the 艾可直播 Board of Directors meeting. Your voices are important to us and your feedback regarding our proposed ESSER investments is critical to our success and our ability to best serve our students, communities, and the rest of our Team & Family. The most recent and Board-approved plan has four focus areas for the use of ESSER funds:

  • Academic Achievement and Closing Student Academic Gaps
  • Student Social and Emotional Wellness
  • Student Safety and Security
  • Student College Matriculation

The Use of Funds Plan and the Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan (published below) were adopted on December 16, 2022.

Florida:

It is important for us to periodically review, and as appropriate, revise our plans for use of ESSER funding based on the current context and needs of our students. For Florida, we will post drafts of the revised Use of Funds Plan and Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan for public comment by June 9, 2023.
