ESSER Funding for Your School or District
ESSER funds are allocated to address the impact of COVID-19 on K-12 schools. Funds are provided as formula grants to states based on each state’s share of Title I funds received in the most recent fiscal year. Districts can use their ESSER funds toward materials that address learning loss, formative and summative assessments, technology, professional development (PD), summer school activities, and social-emotional learning (SEL) programs.
How can ESSER funds be used?
Districts have flexibility to use the ESSER funds on any “activity authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act”. Additionally, ESSER legislation specifies that funds can be used for professional development and resources to support teachers addressing learning loss.
ESSER funds can be used for:
- Identifying and addressing unfinished learning
- Software, hardware, connectivity
- Instructional materials
- Professional development
- Supporting diverse students
There is funding available to support educators’ efforts to ensure all students make progress toward and achieve on-grade level performance. ORIGO Education provides both supplemental educational programs as well as targeted professional learning to help you meet your goals.
Our professional development programs are designed to support educators as they accelerate learning for all students and are eligible for ESSER funds. In addition, we offer a range of supplemental resources to support elementary mathematics.

- The Think Tanks Problem-Solving (four topics per grade level to target specific areas of need)
- Fundamentals Games (print and/or digital games to support fluency)
- Big Books (print and animated) to support mathematical literacy
