Leverage ESSER Funding to Address Learning Loss
Bring Students Back to Grade Level with Proven Strategies
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act includes an Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER), which allocates $126 billion for K-12 schools. This K-12 COVID-19 stimulus fund gives districts the resources to address learning loss/unfinished learning so that students can get back to grade level.
ARP ESSER Fund Requirements
Districts must spend at least 20% of their ARP ESSER funds to address learning loss through evidence-based interventions such as tutoring, summer, and extended day/afterschool programs.
How to Address Learning Loss
Volunteers, tutors, mentors, and other education professionals can help bring students back to grade level and assist with enrichment programs that positively impact students’ academic development while supporting their social, emotional, and mental health needs.
- Summer Enrichment
- Virtual Volunteers
Tutoring works best when it’s led by teaching candidates, recently retired teachers, paraprofessionals, teachers, or highly trained tutors. High dosage tutoring tends to have the highest impact on student learning. This approach consists of providing consistent tutoring sessions at least three days a week for at least 30 minutes at a time.
Evidence shows that students who are engaged with volunteers, tutors, mentors, and other education professionals have improved learning outcomes. This engagement also supports our most vulnerable students in returning to and staying engaged in school.
