Students with disabilities have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic compared to their peers without disabilities. The American Rescue Plan: Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ARP ESSER) is providing Kentucky Department of Education’s (KDE’s) Office of Special Education and Early Learning (OSEEL) a chance to help those students.  

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) – which included more than $2 billion for Kentucky public schools – authorized a third ESSER Fund, ARP ESSER. The federal funding supports the safe and sustained return to in-person learning and expands equity by supporting students who need it most, particularly those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
