As many of you are aware, the Federal Government has passed several pieces of legislation since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic which directs additional funding toward schools for use in targeted areas. The American Rescue Plan (ARP), signed into law in March 2021, provided $122 billion for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. As such, Black River Local School District was a recipient of these funds. During a special meeting of the Black River Local School District Board of Education on June 3, the Board formally adopted a tentative plan for the use of our allotted ESSER funding. It is important that we share these important updates with our families and community. We are excited for the many unique opportunities that will come from this funding and remain dedicated to providing ongoing communication as projects and initiatives come to fruition.

On February 9, 2021, Governor DeWine asked schools and districts to work with their communities and educational stakeholders to help students continue to advance academically and to make up for any learning that may have been lost or delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic and related disruptions.“This once-in-a-lifetime pandemic has impacted all of us, so it should be no surprise that it has impacted our children. But we should not panic, nor should we be surprised by the results of assessments,” said Governor DeWine. “Instead, we should do what Ohioans have always done when facing a challenge – stay calm, roll up our sleeves, and work to solve the problem.”Governor DeWine has requested that schools and districts design plans that address learning recovery and extended learning opportunities to meet the needs of students that could include, but are not limited to, extending the current school year, beginning the new year early, extending the school day or instituting summer programs, tutoring, remote options, and other remedial or supplemental activities.
