ESSER Funding

The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds are part of the third federal stimulus and emergency COVID-19 relief funding authorized as part of the American Rescue Plan. All public school districts are eligible for ESSER funding.

Anderson Community Schools has been awarded three rounds of ESSER funding:
  • Round 1: $2,829,664.41
  • Round 2: $11,483,665.11
  • Round 3: $26,634,898.56
An update on ESSER spending can be found below.
An online survey is now open that will allow us to solicit public input on ESSER III funding (below). Similar to previous surveys, this input will be used to help best prioritize our spending. We encourage all interested community stakeholders to complete this survey.
