How much will your school district get from the American Rescue Plan?

EdSource has published a searchable database showing how much every school district in California can expect to receive from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), signed by President Biden last week. The database also shows funding allocations from the previous CARES Act and the December 2020 COVID relief bill.

The numbers are based on Title 1 funding. According to EdSource, “the amounts districts could receive could be higher than those listed, because the database does not include $397.7 million in funds from the American Rescue Plan Act to be distributed at the discretion of the state. How that funding will be distributed has yet to be determined.”

Below is a list of the state’s 20 largest school districts based on enrollment, as well as respective allocation from the ARPA. Overall, K-12 schools will receive $15.3 billion in federal assistance.
