Coronavirus/ESSER Information

Dixon School District 9 LE# 0809ARP ESSER PLAN
The US Department of Education required the Montana Office of Public Instruction to establish a process for district plans consistent with the ARP ESSER requirement for the use of ARP ESSER funds and to ensure plans are made available to the public prior to August 24, 2021. 
The plan must include how districts will: 
  1. Use funds to implement prevention and mitigation strategies; 
  2. Use funds totaling not less than 20% to address lost instructional time; 
  3. Spend its remaining 80% of ARP ESSER funds; 
  4. Respond to needs of student populations disproportionally affected by the pandemic; and 
  5. Meaningfully engage with and consult stakeholders in crafting their plans. 

As with the Dixon School Safe Return to In-Person School and Continuity of Learning Plan, this plan provides another way for state and federal agencies to ensure responsible use of funding as we collaborate to meet district goals of keeping student, staff, and community health and well-being a priority.Dixon School District 9 LE#0809 ARP ESSER PLAN Reviewed 5-08-24 Dixon School District 9 LE#0809 ARP ESSER PLAN Reviewed 4-10-24  Dixon School District 9 LE#0809 ARP Plan reviewed 2-14-24ARP ESSER Plan Update - May, 2023ARP ESSER PLAN Update - January, 2023ARP ESSER PLAN Update - December, 2022ARP ESSER PLAN - June, 2022
On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 was signed into Law. The ARP Act provides funding to allow state and local education agencies to take additional steps for continued safe in-person instruction and to address unfinished teaching and learning to mitigate challenge through and beyond the COVID-19 pandemic. 
Section 2001(i)(1) of the ARP Act requires each district to develop and make publicly available on their website a plan for the Safe Return to School and Continuity of Services Plan. We are currently seeking public comment on the Dixon School Safe Return Plan as we continue to draft our next steps. 
Please take some time to review our plan and provide feedback.
