In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) was signed into law, funding the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) for school districts across America. As this is the third law providing funding in response to the pandemic, the ARP is also referred to as ARP ESSER III or ESSER III.|
