Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) III Funds – Public Input (Draft)

Over the past year, the federal government passed a number of flexible stimulus aids for school districts to utilize during the COVID-19 pandemic. Since Nebraska was one of the only states that held in-person learning for the entire 2020-2021 school year, students in Nebraska did not experience learning loss to the extent of students in other states. Freeman Public Schools plans to use the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) III Funds in a variety of ways. These include but are not limited to:

  • Professional Learning for Teachers & School Leaders;
  • Purchasing high-quality instructional materials and content to address any forms of learning loss or the aftereffects of it (Math and English/Language Arts);
  • Purchasing iPads and Chromebooks to support our one-to-one technology program;
  • Providing mental health services and supports.

The district is asking the public for feedback on the use of the ESSER III funds. If you have any ideas in accordance with the established parameters to address student learning needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic or to promote the health and safety of everyone that uses our facilities, please complete the Google Form below. Thank you for your time and attention to this matter.
