ARP ESSER Funding Plan

Per the Illinois State Board of Education, each school district that receives ARP ESSER funds must develop a plan for its use of the funds and it submit the plan to ISBE within 90 days of the funds being received. School districts must also provide the public opportunity to provide input on the plan and post the plan on the district’s website.


The South Pekin Grade School District 137 School Board sought out public discussion on the use of the district’s ARP ESSER grant at an open meeting on Monday, September 25th at 5:00 p.m. The ARP ESSER III grant was listed as a discussion item on the Board’s agenda, and the Board and administration publicly discussed the district’s intended uses of the funds. The Board will continue to publicly evaluate and discuss ARP ESSER funds every six months until the end of the grant period.
