The Rochester School District (RSD) is applying to receive American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds(ESSER III) to address learning recovery and the impact of COVID-19. These funds are designated for one-time or short-term expenditures to address the ongoing impact of the pandemic.
RSD is seeking feedback from all district and community stakeholders to help determine how the district should best utilize these resources to address unfinished learning and ongoing COVID-19 recovery. Your responses will help us to finalize the major areas of need for which we will use “ESSER III” funding in the RSD.
Please submit your feedback before August 20, 2021. We understand that this is a short turnaround, but at this time we are still waiting for the NH DOE to provide both guidance and a financial template. At this time all that we know is that our deadline is August 23, 2021 and we need to provide some sort of plan based on the information you provide through this survey. Thank you!
