Plan for ESSER III Funding
As COVID-19 has brought on numerous challenges for staff, students and families at the St. Clair County Safe School Alternative Education Center, administration recognizes the overwhelming need to have a plan and staff in place to provide for the social and emotional welfare of our students. As such, the ARP – LEA American Rescue Plan Esser III funding will be used to help support the new position of social worker at the school. All of the ESSER III funds will be put towards salary. Other funding sources will be used in addition to ESSER III funds to provide support for this position. The Safe School has never had a social worker on staff, hence, this is new position, not supplanting of current funds.
