In March 2021, the American Rescue Plan was signed into law. The funding package provides $122 billion in direct K-12 funding to help schools recover from the pandemic. To meet the requirements of the law, states and districts must engage stakeholders (including principals) to determine the needs of schools and how funds should be spent.
