Funding for Learning Recovery

Though many educators dislike the term “learning recovery,” in March of 2021, a federal program earmarked $126 billion for K12 schools. Five percent of those funds must be spent on evidence-based learning recovery programs.

For teachers, this means these funds may be used to strengthen the skills you personally want to enhance to manage the highly diverse academic needs of your students this term. Many teachers are unaware of the details of this funding source, so we are providing fact sheets that you can use to request more personalized support, paid for by your school administration. The program is called the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act and it includes the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund.  (ARP ESSER.)
