ARP Plan

The New York State enacted budget includes language requiring local education agencies, such as school districts, that receive funding from the Federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund allocated by the American Rescue Plan Act to annually (through 2023-24) post on its website, a plan by school year detailing how these funds will be used.
Needs assessments were completed with building-level teams consisting of administrators, teachers, support staff, and parents. Public comment was sought from parents/guardians, teachers, and other stakeholders on the plan and considered in finalizing and submitting the plan to the New York State Education Department (NYSED). The District conducted a public hearing on June 28, 2022, during which the District received no comments on the plan.
Funding will be used to sustain the safe operations of Oakfield-Alabama CSD while addressing students' academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. 
As state education law requires, the district maintains an ARP ESSER Plan and ARP/ESSER State Reserves plan and must post it on its website. This plan is designed to outline how these funds will be used.  The Approved American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) grant applications and updated ARP Plan, effective July 1, 2022, are below.
