ARP Data Tables 2021-09-02T15:58:43-06:00

The American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) Fund, authorized under the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021, provides nearly $122 billion to states to support the nation’s schools in safely reopening and sustaining safe operations of schools while meeting the academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs of students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This ARP ESSER funding enables states and local educational agencies (LEAs), and more directly schools, to support students who have been most severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and are likely to have suffered the most because of longstanding inequities in our communities and schools that have been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic.

In March 2021, the NM Public Education Department informed all LEAs that they were expected to offer in-person learning opportunities for all students choosing that option, and to continue to allow students choosing to remain online to participate in online programming. All schools and districts in New Mexico offered full-time, in-person instruction to all students as well as online-only programming. The tables below represent the enrollment and mode of instruction and how many schools in our state offered each mode of learning instruction or learning model.
