American Rescue Plan

The American Rescue Plan includes substantial investments for public schools to keep students and staff, as well as to meet the social, emotional, fiscal and academic needs caused by the pandemic. The federal funding is not meant to supplant state investments in education, but instead designed to assist our students and communities in coming out of this most difficult period better.
