Trump Seeks Emergency Coronavirus School Funding
[Source: Education Week]
Schools would get access to over $100 million in emergency funding to help them deal with the coronavirus as part of a broader March 17 proposal from the Trump administration.
The supplemental $100 million for the U.S. Department of Education would be accessible to K-12 schools as well as colleges and universities. It would be earmarked for Project SERV, a program that helps schools recover from traumatic events, and could be used to “help clean and disinfect affected schools, and assist in counseling and distance learning/online learning costs,” according to the proposal.
Districts have previously used SERV grants in the aftermath of shootings, community violence, and hurricanes.
