Continuity of Service Plan for 2021-22 School Year

Safe Return to In-person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plans

The recently passed American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides substantial federal resources to support states and local school districts. Recent federal guidance clarifies expectations for states and districts, including the development of a state plan that must be approved by the U.S. Department of Education before the remaining one-third of the federal funds can be allocated. 

The federal template also includes a requirement that districts and community schools receiving American Rescue Plan funds must publish local “Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plans” by June 24, 2021.
