ESSER- Public Input Requested for the TCSD Safe Return to School Plan and Funding Implementation Plan

In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) act was signed into law, dedicating funds for K-12 schools through the Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief (ESSER) III funds. As a result, Teton County School District #1 is eligible to receive $3.9 million in one-time federal funds. The purpose of these funds is to help maintain safe and effective operations of our schools and address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on learning and student's social-emotional well being.  The funding requires at least 20% of the funds are used to address learning loss, mental health, and student well-being.

To receive the funding we must develop and obtain stakeholder input on a Safe Return to School/Smart Start Plan.  Our plan, which is available here,  meets all requirements outlined by the Wyoming Department of Education and considers Teton County and Wyoming Department of Health orders.  Please take a few minutes to complete this survey to provide input on the plan.   The plan will be regularly reviewed at TCSD Board of Trustee Meetings.  

In addition to the Safe Return to School/Smart Start Plan, the District must develop an Implementation Plan that outlines how we will use the federal funding to address the impacts of COVID on  students and schools.  We are seeking stakeholder input on the priority areas that are allowable within the grant.  Please complete this survey to provide feedback on the priority areas. 

Both of these surveys will remain open until January 31, 2022.
