Summary: Via Superintendent’s Memo #273-20, Coronavirus Relief Funds in the amount of $2,490,443 have been awarded to ACPS. These funds will come directly to our division through direct deposit, with reporting on fund accounting and spending to occur in January, 2021. The period of spending is from March 1, 2020 – December 30, 2020.

This CRF funding, through the US Treasury Department, was provided in order to mitigate costs incurred due to COVID 19 and reopening and operating schools during the first months of the 2020-21 school year. As noted, qualifying costs can extend back to the beginning of the pandemic in March.

Categories for CRF spending include: testing supplies, PPE, facility cleaning and sanitization, technology, staffing, capital facilities upgrades, pupil transportation, and emphasizing special student populations such as EL students, SPED students and PK-3 students. These are federal funds. The funds will be received and disbursed as attached.
Funding: As presented.
Recommendation: Request the Board of Supervisors to appropriate the Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF) in the amount of $2,490,443.00 and to amend the appropriations ordinance accordingly.
