Universities & Schools

The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund, also known as ESSER.[1] is a $190 billion program created by the U.S. federal government‘s economic stimulus response bills, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP Act), passed by the 116th and 117th U.S. Congress. Originally created under the CARES Act to assist schools with creating healthy learning environments, return students to classrooms, and address local needs,[2] the ESSER fund was bolstered twice with additional funds in the CRRSA Act, known as ESSER 2.0,[3] as well as the ARP Act, known as ESSER 3.0.[4]The American Rescue Plan (ARP) and the Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund (ESSER).

Recent studies have shown masks to be ineffective at mitigating the spread of airborne diseases. School closures have created more problems than they solved, and the long term social impact on kids remains to be felt. The ESSER funds are still available to upgrade HVAC systems but upgrading equipment without installing high efficiency air filters simply exacerbates the issue as airborne pathogens are spread more rapidly. Additionally, use of the ESSER funds requires documentation of how the funds were used and showing documented results.
