The money can only be used on COVID-related expenses. All Illinois school districts will be receiving ESSERS grant monies based on student enrollment.
The district expects to receive about $779,000 through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief III (ARP) grant.
At least 20 percent of the ARP Grant, or about $155,000, must be used on academic programming. The rest can be used on COVID-related expenses such as PPE and capital projects. Please see the presentation link below for more details:
