ESSER Funds
  • Assessment data indicates that the pandemic has had a significant impact on student learning across the state and country.

    The American Rescue Plan signed into law in March 2021 by President Joe Biden included $122 billion in Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds for school districts across the country, which is the single largest investment in federal elementary and secondary education in the nation’s history. Lancaster ISD has applied for and expects to receive about $14 million in ESSER III funding, which is intended to help reopen schools and accelerate learning and mitigate learning loss.

    ESSER provides resources for: critical one-time investments; time-limited programming to respond to the pandemic; and innovation that can redefine student learning, acceleration, and development.

    Lancaster ISD's Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan will be reviewed and revised as needed, at least every six months, until Sept. 30, 2023. This process will include stakeholder input. Your input will be considered during reviews of the plan.
