Use of Esser III Funds

Wyandotte Public Schools is committed to implementing prevention and mitigation strategies, addressing the academic impact of lost learning time, and responding to all students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs from the Covid pandemic.

This plan was developed through consultation with stakeholders, including students, parents/guardians, families, teachers, board members, school staff, district administrators, principals, special education director, the federal programs director, the alternative education director, the district homeless liaison, the district foster care liaison, the district Indian education project director and community leaders. A Tribal representative from the Wyandotte  Nation was also involved in the consultation and collaboration. The district engages in ongoing consultation and collaboration with our local tribes.

Wyandotte Public Schools will periodically, but not less than every six months, seek public  input and consultation to review and, as appropriate, revise the plan that was developed.

Following the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP)/Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER) plan guidance provided by the United States Department of Education (USDE) and the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE), this plan was initially approved and adopted by the Wyandotte Public Schools Board of Education on Monday, August 9, 2021. After approval and adoption, the plan was posted on the district’s website on August 16, 2021.
