In March, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) was signed into law and is estimated to provide an unprecedented $2.1 billion for South Carolina public schools. This allocation is on top of more than $846 million allocated to school districts with the passage of the Coronavirus Response & Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA) in December 2020 and more than $194 million with the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act that passed in March of 2020.

• How is the money being allocated to school districts and when?

• How do districts spend this funding?

• How much has already been spent?

• What kind of expenses can the money be directed to fund?

• When is the deadline for spending all of these funds?

Learn the answers to these questions and more to gain a better understanding of how billions in funding for South Carolina schools can help your students.

Join us from noon to 1:30 p.m. (may be extended to accommodate questions, comments) on Wednesday, May 12, 2021, to learn more about the 12 allowable uses for these funds and how to begin thinking strategically about your district’s needs.
