NetSupport’s learning solutions are eligible for ESSER funding
How do NetSupport’s learning solutions fit in?
There are three main stipulations in ESSER and ESSER II* that apply to the potential purchase and use of learning technology solutions:
- Purchasing educational technology (including hardware, software, and connectivity) for the LEA’s students.
- Planning and implementing activities related to summer learning and supplemental afterschool programs, including providing classroom instruction or online learning during the summer months and addressing the needs of low-income students, students with disabilities, English learners, migrant students, students experiencing homelessness, and children in foster care.
- Planning for and coordinating during long-term closures, including how to provide meals to eligible students, how to provide technology for online learning to all students, how to provide guidance for carrying out requirements under IDEA (20 U.S.C. 1401 et seq.) and how to ensure other educational services can continue to be provided consistent with all federal, state, and local requirements.
How do schools access the funding?
State Education Agencies (SEAs) apply directly to the Department for Education for the ESSER funding. School districts must then apply to their SEA for their share.
Specific details of what the funds can be used for can be found in the excerpts from the CARES Act here (Appendix A on page 10).
