PWCS is seeking community input into the development of the plan for these funds to support students and schools. Details on current fall learning plans are available on the PWCS website.

Please note that the ARP ESSER fund has limitations and rules from both the federal government and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) restricting its use to only specific allowable costs. These details are still being finalized by VDOE but are generally restricted to use in responding to the educational disruptions caused by the COVID–19 pandemic.
