ESSA Support & Program Resource Services

ESSA Support & Program Resource Services

The ESC’s Program Resource Services analyze district and school student data to focus funding support where needed most, ensuring ongoing results in resolving student learning gaps.
The Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Federal Programs (OFP) will provide stakeholders with important information and implementation updates on the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSERF) as they become available. The ESSER Fund provides support to local educational agencies (LEAs) to address the impact that the novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has had, and continues to have, on elementary and secondary schools across the nation. LEAs receiving ESSER Funds must provide equitable services to students and teachers in nonpublic schools as required under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Public districts must ensure that they consult with all nonpublic schools, both chartered nonpublic schools and non-chartered, non-tax schools regarding participation in ESSERF equitable services.

It provides short term relief for administrative, financial management, and audit requirements under 2 CFR Part 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, without compromising Federal financial assistance accountability requirements.
