The American Rescue Plan (ARP) and the federal government’s Interim Final Rule outline the requirements regarding spending ESSER III funds and public reporting. Local educational agencies (LEAs) must publicly share their spending plans, including specifics about (i) their plans to spend on COVID-related health and safety, (ii) 20% of funds to address the impact of lost learning time, and (iii) plans for the more flexible 80% and (iv) how the LEA will ensure that the interventions will respond to the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of students disproportionally impacted by the pandemic, including students from low-income families, students of color, English learners, children with disabilities, students experiencing homelessness, children in foster care, and migratory students.
