CCSD is continuously working towards the implementation of the recovery and relief funds. We are regularly monitoring spending, implementation, and interim progress measures to ensure that we are on track to meet our goals.
In addition, we are committed to maintaining transparency and accountability by regularly sharing updates on the usage of these funds with our community. The first Use of Funds Report that was shared with the community in Fall 2022, was recognized by the Nevada Department of Education, earning a commendation for our transparency and commitment to meeting the needs of our students and community.
We remain dedicated to continuing this work and using these funds to address the pressing needs of our district and students. We will continue to provide a comprehensive annual update via the Use of Funds Report and quarterly information on our progress through the ARP ESSER III Dashboard, found on the homepage of this website.
The CCSD Use of Funds Plan was approved by the Nevada Department of Education on March 18, 2022 and CCSD subsequently began implementation. The District submitted a revised ESSER III use of funds plan that was approved on September 1, 2022.
CCSD is implementing a range of projects with the ARP ESSER III funding meant to accelerate recovery efforts. So far, the district is proud to share:
CCSD ESSER III investments are already impacting schools, students, and families.

In summer 2021, CCSD launched Phase 1 of this work to partner with the community on a plan for pandemic recovery.
Partner organizations from across the community collected input from their members and the people they serve in a series of community input conversations. We are grateful to the 80+ community organizations, and approximately 13,000 individual stakeholders, who rallied together to reimagine school for our children.
With a goal of convening a representative cross-section of our diverse community, three community members from each CCSD Region were selected to serve on a Community Advisory Committee (CAC) to help synthesize the input received. The CAC met to review the community input and developed a synthesis report that captures the topics and themes they observed.
Read the CAC’s final report in English (PDF) and Spanish (PDF). Meet the members of the CAC here.
We are pleased to share the results of this process in CCSD’s Use of Funds Plan.
