What's LiveSchool?

LiveSchool is the online platform for schools who want to create positive school-wide culture through student engagement. LiveSchool helps create whole-school culture systems built upon the fundamentals of PBIS — consistent expectations, engaging feedback, and actionable data — that motivate students and drive achievement.

What's ESSER?

Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) provides critical resources approved by the US Congress to help schools respond to the Covid-19 pandemic, get students back into physical buildings, and remediate the academic and socio-emotional challenges ahead.

ESSER funds have actually been passed twice. First, by the CARES Act in March 2020, and again by the CRRSA Act in January 2021. We'll refer to these as "ESSER 1" and "ESSER 2" funds.

Here are some important details to know:

  • Funds must be spent by specific dates: September 30, 2022 for ESSER 1 and September 30, 2023 for ESSER 2
  • Funds can be used for your LiveSchool subscription, which qualifies as an educational technology purchase and as a support for social-emotional learning.
  • ESSER funds may be used for multi-year subscriptions.

LiveSchool's ESSER Partnership Opportunity

We've never felt more passionate about the importance of school-wide culture and positive behavior supports. Our team would love to partner with your school or district to put a positive, student-centered culture at the center of your plans.

That's why we're rolling out a special discount that enables your team to commit your ESSER funds to a multi-year partnership with LiveSchool, providing predictability for staff, and save precious resources that can be allocated to other programs.

We are offering a 10% discount for schools and districts who purchase a 3-year subscription by December 1st, 2021.

To get started with your multi-year subscription, simply email support@liveschoolinc.com for your estimate.

For more information about ESSER, see this US Department of Education Fact Sheet and California Department of Education resource.
