U.S. Department of Education Approves Connecticut’s Plan for Use of American Rescue Plan Funds to Support K-12 Schools and Students, Distributes Remaining $369 Million to State

The U.S. Department of Education recently announced the approval of Connecticut’s American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) plan thereby distributing the remaining remaining ARP ESSER funds to the state of Connecticut.

Connecticut’s plan details how the state plans to use ARP ESSER funds to safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and equitably expand opportunity for students who need it most, particularly those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
As schools and states begin the new school year, the U.S. Department of Education released the Return to School Roadmap, which provides key resources and supports for students, parents, educators, and school communities to build excitement around returning to classrooms this school year and outlines how federal funding can support the safe and sustained return to in-person learning. ARP funds can be used to support the roadmap’s efforts.
