Per our Policy Consultant Myrna Mandlawitz - ARPA does = ESSER III. The fund within ARPA is the Elem/Secondary Education Relief Fund.....the mechanism for getting the $$ out in all these emergency packages.
Phyllis Wolfram
Thank you Myrna for clarifying in writing for us all!
Myrna Mandlawitz
ESSER is the section within ARPA that is designated for K-12
Myrna Mandlawitz
This is why we need YOUR advocacy. There are "negotiations" around the infrastructure package...and some folks on Capitol Hill are not inclined to include schools in that package!
Myrna Mandlawitz
THis is why CASE is advocating every day for increases in the "regular" annual federal appropriations for IDEA and all K-12 education programs.
