American Rescue Plan (ARP)
As part of the federal government’s American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act, school districts across the country are receiving additional funding to support student needs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will receive a total allocation of approximately $6.5 million to invest in our student's education over the next three years. These funds are being utilized to support the reopening of schools and to address learning loss that occurred as a result of the pandemic.
