    On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Among its many provisions, the Act includes specific funding sources for Local Education Agencies. Specifically, Section 18003 of the CARES Act establishes the Elementary Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSERF).

    The core purpose of the Elementary and Secondary school Emergency Relief Fund is to provide direct money to school districts and provide funding to support areas impacted by the disruption and closure of schools from COVID-19. The purpose of the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund is to address the impact COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, on elementary and secondary schools, which includes both: (1) Continuing to provide educational services while schools are closed, such as remote learning; and (2) Developing and implementing plans for the return to normal operations.

    USED has provided guidance that LEAs may spend their funds on a wide variety of activities including but not limited to:

    1. Any activity authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA), the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act (Perkins), or the McKinney Vento Homeless Education Assistance Act,
    2. Coordination of LEA preparedness and response efforts to improve coordinated responses with other agencies to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the CORVID19 outbreak,
    3. Providing principals and other school leaders with the resources necessary to address school needs,
    4. Activities to address the unique needs of low-income children or students, children with disabilities, English learners, racial and ethnic minorities, students experiencing homelessness, and foster care youth,
    5. Developing and implementing procedures and systems to improve LEA preparedness and response efforts,
    6. Training and professional development for LEA staff including training on sanitation and other activities necessary to minimize the spread of this infectious disease now and once schools are reopened,
    7. Purchasing supplies to sanitize and clean all LEA facilities,
    8. Planning for and coordinating activities during long-term school closures, including how to provide meals, technology for online learning, guidance on IDEA requirements, and ensuring other educational services can continue to be provided as efficiently as possible and consistent with all applicable requirements,
    9. Purchasing educational technology (including hardware, software, and connectivity) for students served by the LEA that aids in regular and substantive educational interactions between students and their classroom teachers, including assistance technology or adaptive equipment,
    10. Providing mental health services and supports,
    11. Planning and implementing activities related to summer learning and supplemental afterschool programs and addressing the needs of low-income students, students with disabilities, English learners, migrant students, students experiencing homelessness, and children in foster care, and
    12. Other activities that are necessary to maintain operations and continuity of services and continuing to employ existing staff.

    All activities must be deemed necessary, reasonable and allocable.
