Health and Safety Plans Submitted to PDE
This page was created on July 21, 2021.
The American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act requires each local education agency (LEA) that receives funding under the ARP Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund to develop and make publicly available a Health and Safety Plan.
Health and Safety Plans must address how the LEA will maintain the health and safety of students, educators, and other staff, which will serve as local guidelines for all instructional and non-instructional school activities during the period of the LEA's ARP ESSER grant.
The Health and Safety Plan should be tailored to the unique needs of each LEA and its schools and must take into account public comment related to the development of, and subsequent revisions to, the Health and Safety Plan.
Federal regulation requires school districts and charter schools that received federal Title 1-A funds to submit their Health and Safety Plans to the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) by July 30, 2021, for compliance. Other public school entities (Career and Technical Education Centers and Intermediate Units) must submit their Health and Safety Plans to PDE by August 30, 2021.
