Community members invited to meeting to learn more about ESSER funding – Charles County Public Schools

Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) are hosting a virtual community meeting at 6 p.m. on November 1, focused on Funding Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER). The federal government has supported school districts across the country with additional funds to continue, if changed, operations under COVID-related restrictions and mitigation efforts.

Three rounds of COVID relief funding have been authorized by the United States Congress since the start of the pandemic. Funding rounds are called Emergency Relief for Elementary and Secondary Schools, also known as ESSER. Each series of ESSER funds has been authorized by separate legislative acts which the President has enacted.

During the meeting, CCPS staff will provide an update on how the school system used the first two rounds of ESSER funds. To learn more about how the first two rounds of funding were allocated, click here.

Community members are invited to give their opinion at the November 1 meeting on how the third round of ESSER funds should be used. Community members must register to attend the virtual meeting, which will begin at 6 p.m. on November 1. To register, visit

Registrants must have an active Zoom account to attend, and a moderate question-and-answer session will be moderated via the chat feature. The meeting will be webcast live on
