School districts, county offices of education, or charter schools, collectively known as LEAs, that receive Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds under the American Rescue Plan Act, referred to as ESSER III funds, are required to develop a plan for how they will use their ESSER III funds. In the plan, an LEA must explain how it intends to use its ESSER III funds to address students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs, as well as any opportunity gaps that existed before, and were worsened by, the COVID-19 pandemic. An LEA may also use its ESSER III funds in other ways, as detailed in the Fiscal Requirements section of the Instructions. In developing the plan, the LEA has flexibility to include community input and/or actions included in other planning documents, such as the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), provided that the input and actions are relevant to the LEA’s Plan to support students.

5.6. Approve Resolution 21-22-09 Support of Applications for Eligibility Determination and Funding in the School Facility Program when Bond Authority is Exhausted
Quick Summary / Abstract:

The Office of Public School Construction announced in September 2018 that Proposition 51 new construction bond authority was exhausted, and in February 2019, modernization bond authority was
exhausted. When bond authority is exhausted, funds are no longer available to be apportioned to
districts; however, the state continues to allow districts to file applications. These applications are
placed on what is called an “Acknowledged List.” However, in order to file an application, State
Allocation Board regulations require district governing boards to adopt a resolution acknowledging
the lack of bond authority, that applications will not undergo any substantial review, that the state
funding program may change, the District’s construction activities are at its own discretion, and that
the State cannot guarantee any funding for the applications in the future. Nonetheless, it is important
for the District to file the request for funds in the event Proposition 51 bond funds return to the
program or if additional state bond funds become available for the Program.
As a result, this resolution is before you to allow the filing of applications for eligibility and funding
that may be undertaken. Therefore, it is recommended to adopt of the resolution presented.
