Public survey on federal stimulus

Federal stimulus survey

The district conducted a survey in June to seek public input on how best to apply the funding allocated through the federal stimulus plans, American Rescue Plan (ARP) and Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA). This funding is restricted and must be used for the upcoming 2021, 2022, and 2023 school years. 

Restricted funds must be used for students in such areas as learning loss, social emotional health, addressing any disproportionality on underrepresented student subgroups, emergency preparedness and response, personal protective equipment, repairs of school facilities, and improving indoor air quality. Districts must also avoid the “financial cliff” after year three, when stimulus funding ends and districts become responsible for sustaining any programs, projects or initiatives.

There were 564 respondents to the survey, with the following results:
