Washington Local School ARP ESSER Local Use of Funds Plan
LOCAL USE OF FUNDS PLAN
Each local education agency (LEA) must submit a detailed ARP Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER) budget application and plan to the Comprehensive Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP) system by Aug. 20, 2021. A template of the ARP ESSER application is located on the Ohio Department of Education website. This detailed budget application is necessary for the state to approve how the district budgets and plans align to allowable activities. The ARP ESSER detailed budgets may need to be revised based on changes to allocations.
As required by the U.S. Department of Education, districts and community schools must provide a public-facing and transparent description of their uses of the federal emergency ARP ESSER funds on their website. The Ohio Department of Education recommends districts and community schools ADD a summary of the Local Use of Funds plan to the existing Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services plan.
