Federal Relief Funding for K-12 Education


Overview

The Nevada Department of Education (NDE) continues to partner with district and school leaders, K-12 education stakeholders, and State and federal officials to lead the education sector’s response to and recovery from COVID-19. As with all of our work, our COVID-19 response is grounded in our values as defined in our Statewide Plan for the Improvement of Pupils: equity, access to quality, success, inclusivity, community, and transparency. In accordance with our values and in partnership with the State Board of Education, NDE identified and has aligned it’s COVID-19 response and recovery – including the allocation of relief funds – to the following priorities established in April 2020, which have been updated to address learning loss as we shift from COVID-19 response to recovery and renewal:

  1. Closing opportunity gaps for students who have been traditionally underserved
  2. Safe, efficient, and equitable re-opening of school buildings
  3. Access to technological capacity for educators, students, and families
  4. Social and emotional support of students in response to COVID-19
  5. Access to high-quality professional development for educators in addressing learning loss
  6. Access to high-quality instructional materials for educators and students to help address learning loss
  7. Support of parents, families, and communities
  8. Access to adult education and workforce development opportunities

The tables below include a summary overview of the federal relief funding provided to school districts and the State Public Charter School Authority (known as local education agencies or LEAs) through the Coronavirus Aid, Recovery, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act, and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act.

            Table 4. Detailed Changes to American Rescue Plan ESSER Funding to LEAs through Title I Methodology

             The U.S. Department of Education (USED) notified states in June 2021 that, due to one state’s revision of Title I data, American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) allocations have been revised.

            The revised allocations reflect adjustments to ARP ESSER allocations and ESSER II allocations resulting from a fiscal year (FY) 2020 Title I data correction and adjustments to ESSER I allocations resulting from a FY 2019 Title I data correction. USED has indicated it will account for all corrections when it awards states the remaining 2/3 of ARP ESSER funds, which Nevada will receive later this summer upon approval of our ARP ESSER State Plan. The updated overall allocations to LEAs as a result of USED’s revisions are in Table 4.
