New Jersey’s school leaders got their first look last week at the details for billions in federal pandemic aid heading to their public schools, according to a May 26 article in NJSpotlight.com.
The article included a searchable chart showing how much each district in the state would receive.
The money — the largest of three major school-relief packages from Washington since last year — is meant to bolster districts’ resources for a wide range of support and services for students during and after the pandemic, from extra academic programs to counselors to air-ventilation systems.
In a May 28 article in NJSpotlight.com, Janellen Duffy, founding director of JerseyCAN, an education reform group, described opportunities to spend the money wisely, highlighting the schools that she said had made “effective and forward-thinking resource decisions to support students and families.”
