ESSER Funding


Approximately $4.5 million of funding through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) federal grant program has been allocated to the Quakertown Community School District.

School districts are required to meet several specifications to receive this funding. The first is that they follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance with their Health And Safety Plan. Another is to receive public input and feedback from stakeholders.

The essence of QCSD's ESSER Funding Plan is focused on the myriad of academic, social-emotional, and mental health issues that resulted from the COVID-19 Pandemic. The federal dollars are one-time money and must be targeted at those needs.

Please take the time to review the Plan here and provide your feedback to Superintendent Dr. Bill Harner and the School Board at board@qcsd.org.
