This is a request for revision of the OMB approved 1810-0759 information collection that solicits from State educational agencies (SEAs) maintenance of equity (MOEquity) data in response to a new proposed requirement related to the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. Section 2004(b) of the ARP Act introduced new MOEquity requirements that SEAs and LEAs must comply with in order to receive ARP ESSER funds. The MOEquity requirements are central to the Department’s commitment to ensuring that essential resources are meeting the needs of students who have been subject to longstanding opportunity gaps in our education system. These student groups have also experienced the greatest impacts from the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. In addition, without this collection, the Department will not be able to carry out its oversight responsibilities of the $122 billion while also ensuring that SEAs receive the resources they need to immediately address COVID-19-related needs. The revision is due to the upcoming notice of proposed requirement that clarifies the MOEquity requirements under the ARP Act. The proposed requirement is for SEAs to post to their websites their MOEquity data in order to improve transparency and accountability in ways that are consistent with the Department’s policy goals of ensuring that schools and LEAs serving large proportions of historically underserved groups of students receive an equitable share of State and local funds as the Nation continues to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our education system. The MOEquity requirements are central to the Department’s commitment to ensuring that essential resources are meeting the needs of students who have been subject to longstanding opportunity gaps in our education system.
