SANY Superintendent Dr. Tolga Hayali's message
Dear SANY Community,
On March 11, 2021, the President signed into law the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA). ARPA makes available $122.8 billion nationally for Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds.
New York has been allocated nearly $9 billion in ARP-ESSER funds, with a minimum of $8.09 billion (90 percent) going to local education agencies, including charter schools.
Local education agencies, such as school districts, that receive funding from the Federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund allocated by the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP-ESSER) to post on their website a plan of how these funds will be spent.
School districts are required to seek public comment from parents, teachers, and other stakeholders and take such comments into account in the development of the plan. I invite you to participate in our surveys and public meetings scheduled to receive recommendations and feedback on the use of these funds from our District stakeholders and the public. Your feedback will be used to inform strategic planning to develop our plan to use the funds.
Our administrative team and other committees composed of teachers, staff members, district leadership, parents and community members will review the plan components during public meetings and surveys.
If you have any questions about the ARP-ESSER plan, please contact us at 315-671-5470.
