Each year the U.S. Department of Education (USED) requires states to submit data on the expenditure of their ESSER I, II, and III funds to fulfill federal reporting requirements. As this is the first year states will be reporting on ESSER II and III, the USED has updated their
data collection requirements.
ODE will use ESSER reimbursement data and other data already submitted to ODE to complete most of the federal report. However, there is some additional data that will need to be submitted by school districts, ESDs, and state-sponsored charter schools.
ODE will be using online forms to collect this additional data. Please note there is a separate collection form for school districts, ESDs, and state-sponsored charter schools. Grantees are
required to submit their data between
March 21st and
May 6th in order to remain in compliance with the requirements for ESSER funding.
Data Collection Questions Lists
To assist grantees in collecting the required data, a complete list of questions in each data collection can be found below. It is recommended grantees use these documents to collect the required data prior to completing the submission forms.
Data Collection FAQs
ESSER III Integrated Planning Tool Update
As part of the district data collection, districts must also submit an updated ESSER III Integrated Planning Tool (IPT) that includes estimated expenses for Year 2. ODE has pre-populated an updated template for each district using the information they submitted in their original IPT.
Please refer to the
ESSER III District Plan Guide for instructions on updating your district's IPT. You can download your district's pre-populated template
