    Congress approved Elementary Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds as part of the CARES Act in March 2020. The Coronovirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a $2.2 billion stimulus bill designed to help the country during the pandemic.

    Specifically, the purpose of the CARES ESSER funding was to support school districts, including the Nashua School District, and pay for the sudden economic fallout and costs incurred because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Nashua School District families and staff have benefited greatly from the funding. After review, the NH Department of Education approved Nashua School District funding requests, addressing the areas of student learning loss, student mental health, family engagement, and school instruction needs. In total, the Nashua School District will have approximately $47 million available under CARES Act funding.
