ARP- ESSER Spending Plan for LCPS

The priority for Letcher County Schools is to have in person instruction for all students.  The ARP-ESSER funds will assist in making that happen safely and addressing the learning loss during the pandemic.   We created a short survey to share with our stakeholders to gain feedback and ideas on how this money can best be used.  The survey was shared via email with all employees, both certified and classified.  The link was also shared on the district’s Facebook page to get input from our parents, students, and community.  We also shared the link with our local KEA representatives.  We also send emails with the link to the Cabinet for Families and Children, Kentucky River Community Care, Mountain Comprehensive Care Corporation, and Mountain Comprehensive Health Care to solicit input from their providers who work directly in our schools with our students. The survey was administered through Google and the results will be kept for documentation.  Although we had over 164 participate, our students were largely under-represented, and we will conduct another survey when school is back in session to gain more input from them.  The survey results were shared with a district team who created the plan.  As well, the plan will be revisited periodically and shared with all stakeholders.
