ESSER III Expenditure Plan

School districts, county offices of education, or charter schools, collectively known as LEAs, that receive Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds under the American Rescue Plan Act, referred to as ESSER III funds are required to develop a plan for how they will use their ESSER III funds. In the plan, an LEA must explain how it intends to use its ESSER III funds to address students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs, as well as any opportunity gaps that existed before, and were worsened by, the COVID-19 pandemic. An LEA may also use its ESSER III funds in other ways, as detailed in the Fiscal Requirements section of the Instructions. In developing the plan, the LEA has the flexibility to include community input and/or actions included in other planning documents, such as the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), provided that the input and actions are relevant to the LEA’s Plan to support students.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) or California Dream Act Application (CADAA) determines a student’s eligibility for financial aid to assist with a student’s attendance at a college or career school. California Education Code (CEC) 51225.7 requires a local educational agency to confirm each 12th grade student’s completion and submission of a FAFSA/CADAA unless the student is determined to be exempt or an opt-out form is completed by a student who is an emancipated minor, a student who is 18 years of age or older, a legal guardian, or parent, or a local educational agency on a student’s behalf. This opt-out form enables a student to Opt-Out of the completion of a FAFSA or CADAA form. 
To opt a student out of the Financial Aid Application requirement, please complete this form and return it to your high school’s counseling department.
