I'm sure I speak on behalf of all parents in regards to our children and their education during this difficult time. Many students currently are engaging in online classes just to finish out the school year.

Schools in the state of Michigan have been approved to receive millions of dollars in funding, according to the Michigan Department of Education.

According to WILX, Michigan schools will receive nearly $390 million in federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds.

The department said the $13.2 billion ESSER fund give emergency relief funds to address the impact that the COVID-19 public health crisis has had on elementary and secondary schools across the United States.

Schools can use the funds to meet a variety of current education needs. The ESSER funds are a one time appropriation and will not be ongoing funding for school districts.

In order to receive funds, districts must submit an online application that includes a brief narrative of their most important educational needs. Please click on the above link for more important information.
