Washington’s Education Stimulus Funds

Washington's Plan for the American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) Fund

The ARP ESSER fund, authorized by the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), provides funding to schools to support sustained safe building reopenings and operations while meeting the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of students resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Department of Education approved Washington's plan for use of the ARP ESSER funds on November 24, 2021.

Appendix A - Table 2

OSPI has detailed district enrollment data as well as information about which instructional model is offered at the district, and these two pieces of information can be linked. However, some students and families have elected to continue remote learning even after in-person instruction was offered, and OSPI does not currently have detail regarding which students opted to continue remote instruction. Therefore, the state-level enrollment data would be reflective of the district’s learning modality generally and would not be representative of individual students’ learning modalities. Between June and August 2021, OSPI plans to gather a point-in-time indicator of which students opted to continue remote learning.  Table 2 (showing Enrollment by Mode of instruction by student group) will be posted publicly after the data are available.
