ARP/ESSER Financial Monitoring Checklist

National Center Logo

National Comprehensive Center partner, Edunomics Lab, shares a financial monitoring checklist to assist state education agencies (SEAs) in assessing the status of American Rescue Plan (ARP) expenditures at the local level and prioritizing areas of focus for monitoring, evaluating, and supporting. SEAs may customize the tool by changing the column headings and inserting LEAs with common characteristics of interest to focus the assessment and/or compare across LEA sub-groups.

Additionally, districts might adapt this tool to use within their own context to examine ARP spending trends at the school-level to prioritize needed supports and ongoing improvement efforts. Use of this tool may also point to spending priorities for sustainability considerations.
