American Rescue Plan – Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ARP ESSER) Information
Murray City School District will receive $4,755,350 from the federal government as part of the American Rescue Plan which was signed into law on March 11, 2021. The program provides an additional $122.8 billion for the ESSER Fund in the same proportion as each state received funds under Part A of Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended, in fiscal year 2020.
The use of these funds is intended to prevent, prepare for, or respond to the COVID-19 pandemic; including its impact on the social, emotional mental health, and academic needs of students.
Leaders from the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) met with a diverse group of stakeholders in May 2021 to get input on statewide needs. USBE identified the following issues currently facing students and schools across Utah as a result of or in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Student mental health and social-emotional needs including student health foundations and protective factors.
- Missing or disengaged students in K-12
- Literacy needs
