Tennesseans 12+: Now Eligible for a COVID-19 Vaccine

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.
