FEDERAL EMERGENCY RELIEF
Please see this week’s memo containing information about the first round of CARES Act GEER funding. As of writing this update, there are three versions of a second major relief bill in Congress (HEROES, HEALS, and CCCERA). All three versions contain funding for K-12 education. I am keeping a close eye on negotiations.
Last week new guidance, Preparing for a Safe Return to School, was released by the CDC. It’s worth the read.
Dr. Robert Redfield, CDC Director, said, “It is critically important for our public health to open schools this fall. The resources released today will help parents, teachers, and administrators make practical, safety-focused decisions as this school year begins. I know this has been a difficult time for our nation’s families. School closures have disrupted normal ways of life for children and parents, and they have had negative health consequences on our youth. CDC is prepared to work with K-12 schools to safely reopen while protecting the most vulnerable.”
Please check the WDE website for updated links to resources for schools and parents.
