A NCSD Policy Brief (August 2020). Prepared by Jessica Mugler & Philip Tegeler (PRRAC).
Excerpt: “Congress provided $16.2 billion in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act for emergency relief to elementary and secondary schools. The CARES Act gives flexibility to governors and local education agencies (LEAs) to decide how to spend their coronavirus relief funding. Congress is currently considering another aid package to support states and school districts as they enter the new school year.”
