ADDISON NORTHWEST SCHOOL DISTRICT

ESSER FUNDS

Addison Northwest School District is seeking to engage with the community this Spring and Summer regarding plans for ESSER III funds. Please read through this webpage for information about ESSER and to find out important next steps for providing your feedback.

WHAT ARE
THE ESSER GRANTS? 
                              

The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund is a federal formula grant managed by the Vermont Agency of Education (AOE). Non-recurring, emergency aid subgrants are being allocated by the AOE to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) by formula based on Title I, Part A allocations - Addison Northwest School District is one of those LEAs. Funds are broken down into three parts: ESSER I, ESSER II, and ESSER III. These grants are considered one-time funds.

WHAT IS TITLE I,
PART A?


Title I, Part A is a Consolidated Federal Program with the purpose of providing all children a significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps. ANWSD receives Title I funding each year.

MEANINGFUL CONSULTATION

The administrative team will continue to solicit feedback from all ANWSD families including students from historically marginalized families, students on IEPs, and ELL learners.
