GOVERNOR J-B PRITZKER IS TOUTING FEDERAL RELIEF MONEY TO HELP SCHOOLS REOPEN AND GET STUDENTS BACK ON TRACK.

 

THE SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS WILL HELP DISTRICTS ADDRESS SOME OF THE OBSTACLES CREATED BY THE PANDEMIC, AND THE CHALLENGE OF RETURNING TO NORMAL SAYS THE GOVERNOR.

 

 

MOST OF THE FUNDING IS COMING FROM THE AMERICAN RESCUE PLAN. IT’S SUGGESTED THE MONEY BE USED FOR THINGS LIKE IMPROVING ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY, SUMMER SCHOOL AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS AND TUTORING.

 

 

THE STATE ISSUED A RESOURCE GUIDE LAST WEEK WITH SUGGESTIONS ABOUT HOW TO USE THE FUNDING, INCLUDING TUTORING AND SUMMER SCHOOL AND AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS.
