Additional Grants Odyssey Charter School Has Received
Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief
ESSER FUNDING: In response to the economic outcome of the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States, Congress passed three bills that provided immediate and direct economic assistance to state and local educational agencies through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds. These funds were provided to support areas with the greatest need, where the academic and non-academic components for school districts had the greatest impact due to COVID-19. As additional funding was provided, the intent of the funds was to support States and local school districts’ efforts to safely reopen schools, address significant gaps in learning, and support measures of implementation that will continue to reduce the effects of COVID-19 on students and families.
- Coronavirus, Aid, Relief & Economic Security (CARES) Act – ESSER I
- Coronavirus Response & Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act – ESSER II
- American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act – ESSER III

Odyssey Charter School Board of Governance, Stakeholders, the Superintendent/Principal, Staff and Parents have all been involved in deciding what the needs of our school and students are to safely reopen Odyssey Charter School and spend Federal ESSER Funds. Our top priority in reopening the classrooms at Odyssey Charter School during the COVID Pandemic is to ensure the safety and education of our students to make the parents feel comfortable sending their children back. We are also here to educate parents and include them in all learning decisions to help transition their child back into the classroom.
