Why Do We Need a Plan for Safe Return to In-Person Instruction?
The recently passed American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides substantial federal resources to support states and local school districts. Recent federal guidance clarifies expectations for states and districts, including the development of a state plan that must be approved by the U.S. Department of Education before the remaining one-third of the federal funds can be allocated. As such, school districts and community schools receiving ARP funding are required to make public their plan for the safe return to in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year.
