The Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) fund is providing a huge influx of resources for schools across America, but many schools are now struggling to decide how to spend the largely unexpected funds. While the relief package is incredibly helpful and impactful, schools will still have to make difficult decisions about how to allocate resources. Many schools are short on teachers and equipment, particularly laptops and other materials students have needed to learn from home. With COVID-19 continuing to burden schools over 18 months past the initial outbreak, many schools are choosing to allocate resources towards cleaning, disinfection, and other safety measures that will prevent the spread of disease and ensure there is a plan in place should a case occur at their school. The hope is that these measures will reduce the frequency of at-home learning, which has been difficult for teachers and students alike.
