Subject: RESPONSE REQUIRED: ESSER District Data Collection NOW OPEN (Corrected Link)

Please Note: This is a copy of an email message that was sent earlier today, but with a fixed link for the District Data Collection Questions.

Greetings Superintendents and Business Managers,

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. This is a message to announce that the period of reporting is now open through April 7, 2023.

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.

We will be using online forms to collect this additional data. Grantees are required to submit their data by April 7th in order to remain in compliance with the requirements for ESSER funding.

Data Collection

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.

All data must be submitted through the submission forms by midnight on April 7th.

Office Hours

As a reminder, we are holding office hours on Zoom to support district data collection and Q&A during the following times. You can sign up for office hours below. Please note the March 27 and March 29 office hours have been canceled. We are offering new office hours on Wednesday, March 8, in their place:

If you are unable to attend office hours and would like more information, we are happy to meet with you or answer any questions over email. Please reach out to for any related needs.

Thank you,

Josh Halsey

Director of Data, Operations, Grant and Management Team
