Item 137 #2h

Direct Aid to Public Education


Page 151, after line 42, insert:

"31.  Each school division each year shall report to the Department of Education information about pass-through federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds provided through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (P.L. 116-136), the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 (P.L. 116-260) and the American Rescue Plan Act (P.L. 117-2).  The Department shall prescribe the format and timeline required for the reporting of such information, which shall include (i) obligated and unobligated amounts, planned uses and planned timing for the use of the remaining obligated and unobligated amounts, and (ii) amounts and uses for which funds have been reimbursed.  The Department shall compile and submit this information to the Chairs of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance and Appropriations Committees no later than November 1, 2023 and November 1, 2024."


(This amendment requires school divisions to report their intended uses of federal COVID-19 ESSER funds. Because information about the use of these funds is only collected at the time of reimbursement, little information is available about how school divisions plan to spend their remaining funds.)
