American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)
In response to the pandemic, additional federal funding has been created to help the education sector address student learning loss, close achievement gaps, and assist with distance learning. An unprecedented amount of funding is being provided to schools by the federal government, and school districts are currently using and planning how to use these funds. The decentralized nature of the school system makes it difficult to understand how schools might spend these funds.
