ESSER III Spending Plan


This ESSER III spending plan was developed by the administrators at Rapoport Academy Public School in conjunction with RAPS stakeholders. Stakeholder input was gathered via public comment opportunity at a regular board meeting held on June 15, 2021. RAPS also used data from a family survey sent out early in 2021 as well as conversations with campus teams (teachers, instructional coaches, campus leaders) and the Board of Directors, which included the faculty representative, the parent representative, parents, and community members.

Total ESSER II Award: $1,350,000
