A $12 billion influx of federal COVID-relief funding provides both opportunities and challenges for school districts. Statewide, the sum approaches the equivalence of a 50% increase in state aid. But the funding is temporary and it comes with strings attached.

To help school district leaders understand the requirements accompanying this federal aid and develop sound plans for its use, the Council has created a website section which will share resources we produce as well as items from the State Education Department and other sources.

Among the items you will find are the recording of our May 13 and a compilation of extracts from laws and regulations which illuminate what can or must be done with the federal aid, while we await more formal guidance from the U.S. Education Department.
