The COVID-19 pandemic changes the way students learn in new, unexpected ways. Luckily, a solution has been passed in the form of the Cares Act and the American Rescue Plan, otherwise known as the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds.  This unprecedented amount of funding is intended for schools to help students and teachers catch up after two years of learning loss caused by the pandemic. ESSER funds may go to a variety of solutions for school improvement over the next two years.  These school improvements include (but are certainly not limited to) education technology, mental health services, additional training for teachers, improvements to infrastructure, air quality, high-quality furniture and much more.  Here at Egyptian Workspace Partners, we know it's easy to waste money on outdated education furniture. That's why we help you design inspiring educational spaces, so your students are engaged, active learners in the classroom and beyond.  In this article, we'll break down exactly what ESSER funds are, and when they expire.
