STEM Supplies is here to help you navigate federal funding!
What is ESSER Funding?
In 2020, the federal government approved funds to be dispersed to schools as a response to the impact of COVID-19 on education.
What Can This Funding Be Used On?
ESSER funds can be used to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. ESSER II (CRRSA) funds can be used for addressing learning loss and preparing schools for reopening. ESSER III (ARPA) funds can be used to not only reopen schools, but also to meet students’ academic, mental health and social, and emotional needs in response to COVID-19, (e.g. through extended learning time, tutoring, and counselors), wherever they are learning.
How Does This Apply to Hands-On STEM Learning?
ESSER funds can be used to support your STEM programs both in the classroom and in afterschool and enrichment programs like STEM clubs and robotics programs. STEM Supplies is proud to offer curriculum-based products that can be easily integrated into your current STEM teachings while all supported by ESSER funding.
