District Five Seeks Feedback On 2021-22 "Return To Learn" Plan

district logoOn March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan (ARP) was signed into law, allowing the U.S. Department of Education to allocate $121.9 billion to the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III fund).  This legislation will provide funding for school districts across the country, including Spartanburg District Five, to address the impact that COVID-19 has had, and will continue to have on our students and schools. 


As part of a two-phase process to receive its share of these funds, District Five must draft a "Return to Learn and Continuity of Services Plan" for the 2021-22 school year.  The South Carolina Department of Education and the federal government also require the district to seek feedback on this plan from all stakeholders.


You can read Spartanburg District Five's draft "Return to Learn" plan here.
