What are we spending all of this Federal COVID Relief money on?

The COVID Relief Funds that school districts are allocated have specific stipulations as to their use and spending plans. These funds are for one-time purchases that are not meant to create future financial obligations for the school community. The relief funds are not to be confused with the general operating budget that is voted on each school year. These are separate funds, grants that will end at the end of 2024.

The funds are being spent on instructional and social-emotional skill building as the Lyncourt school works toward full recovery from the loss our students experienced throughout the COVID pandemic. Some of the special services provided for by these grants include:

After school enrichment programs, tutoring, Social Worker, behavior management systems and specialists, iPads, chromebooks, new math curriculum, Summer School, field trips, assemblies, professional development, cleaning and disinfecting, additional help in the Nurse's office, Reading Paraprofessional, Smithsonian science kits, library books and materials.
