• The American Rescue Plan (ARP or ESSER III) provides direct aid to help safely reopen and sustain the safe operation of schools and address the impact of COVID-19 on schools. ARP requires each public school unit to use at least 20% of their allotment for addressing learning loss. 

    ARP is intended to assist eligible public school units during and after the coronavirus pandemic. The Vance County Schools allotment for this fund is approximately $24.4 million. These funds must be used by September 30, 2024.
