The American Rescue Plan (ARP) is a sweeping funding package enacted in 2021 to help the country recover from the widespread effects of COVID-19 – including effects on school districts.
Federal ARP guidelines require school districts to use this one-time funding, over three years, to measure and address the academic impact of lost instructional time on all students through the implementation of evidence-based interventions. These include, but are not limited to, interventions implemented through summer learning or summer enrichment, extended day, comprehensive after-school programs or extended school year programs.
Federal guidelines also require school districts to ensure that such interventions respond to students’ academic, social-emotional and mental health needs, and address the impact of COVID-19 on groups of students that the pandemic has disproportionately affected.
The City School District of Albany surveyed stakeholders last spring for guidance on spending ARP funds in the first year. In 540 responses, the following four areas were identified as the top priorities:
- Social-emotional and mental health supports – 76.44%
- Educational technology – 69.73%
- HVAC (ventilation/air filtration) – 68.36%
- Safety and security – 68.05%
