Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III (ESSER III) funds are being provided under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021, Public Law 117-2, enacted on March 11, 2021. The purpose of ESSER III is to address the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on students by combating learning losses, supporting social-emotional needs and ensuring a safe return to the school environment for students. NPS will submit an application for ESSER III funds to the Nebraska Department of Education which must include input from a variety of stakeholders on how best to use these funds.
The District's ESSER III Use of Funds Plan can be found on the district website. Links provided below.
We encourage all stakeholders (students, parents, staff and community members) to provide input on the plan through this form.
