Community Input on ESSER III Federal Stimulus Spending

The community of St. Vrain Valley Schools is invited to provide feedback and suggestions on the plan for allocating the district’s share of ESSER III Federal Stimulus funding. The district is required to set-aside at least 20 percent of ESSER III funding to address learning loss through the implementation of evidence-based interventions. The district must also ensure those interventions respond to students’ social, emotional, and academic needs and address the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on underrepresented student subgroups including; each major racial and ethnic group, children from low-income families, children with disabilities, English learners, gender, migrant students, students experiencing homelessness, and children and youth in foster care. Remaining ESSER funds should be used for pandemic-related expenses that will help ensure the safe return to in-person learning.
