ESSER II Voluntary Reversion Request Process - ALL PSUs
PSUs were notified by the Office of Learning and Recovery in early June of a request for any voluntary reversions of ESSER II funding. That request is time sensitive and was centered primarily on those funds that would need to be redistributed in July to be used for the specific purpose of summer instructional activities. However, the form and process may be used for any of the ESSER II Programs that a PSU feels they cannot use effectively for the purpose directed and/or by September 30, 2023, when the grants end.
Click below for the form and process instructions:
The funding related to the summer programs is time sensitive if we hope to get the funds redistributed for effective use in July. The deadline for this initial request is JUNE 20, 2023. We welcome any other reversions as may be warranted and will continue to accept those thru August 18th. With your help we can ensure these funds are used effectively for the benefit of the students of North Carolina. Thank you for your consideration. The forms can be returned to, and questions directed to, Kristie Weber at Kristie.Weber@dpi.nc.gov.
