In 2020, the United States Congress voted to pass the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act to provide emergency funding to all states during the  COVID-19  pandemic.  In 2021, Congress voted to provide additional funding, called the  American  Rescue  Plan (ARP).  The purposes of  ARP/ESSER funds are to ensure that schools are able to safely reopen if they had been closed, ensure that schools were able to remain open and provide opportunities to correct any gaps in learning that students may have experienced due to the  COVID-19 pandemic.  Following input from our staff and community members, our system has prioritized the use of funds in the order included in this attached document.  If you would like to provide suggestions on the use of these funds, please click here.  Your input will be greatly appreciated.

For the 2023-2024 school year, Social Circle City Schools have returned to a fully face-to-face instructional delivery model (exceptions occur where individualized educational plans, 504 plans, or behavioral plans require virtual instruction).

The district is monitoring COVID-19 cases in our schools and working with families and employees to allow flexibility as needed.
