ESSER District Planning Resources

Tennessee public schools will receive over $4.5 billion in federal relief funding for use between spring 2020 and fall 2023-- an historic influx of federal funding to support K-12 schools and students across the state. Districts will receive funding directly through the Tennessee Department of Education and will also have access to additional grant opportunities and free resources developed and provided by the department with its portion of federal funding. 

To support districts in planning, the department will post and regularly update this page with guidance, templates and resources.

TN ALL Corps Partner Guide

To assist districts with designing their TN ALL Corps tutoring programs, the department is creating a tutor partner guide for districts that may choose to work with a third-party provider to deliver some or all of its tutoring services through TN ALL Corps. Districts are not required to partner with third-party providers, nor are they required to use a partner from the guide we create. However, this guide is intended to serve as a resource for districts interested in working with a tutor partner. Vendor vetting and qualification, purchasing and invoicing, including final determination of costs, will occur between the district and any tutor partner they select to work with, subject to districts’ local purchasing policies. The department is offering all interested vendors an opportunity to be listed as a potential tutor partner in this guide by agreeing to the minimum requirements outlined in the submission link, and submitting program information here by September 24, 2021 at 5:00pm CT.
