Have you seen this information on the ESSER covid funding that school districts are receiving?
Three Covid-19 Relief Funding Rounds for Schools Means Thousands of Dollars Per Pupil in Targeted Funds for Programs like Budget Challenge
The federal Department of Education has provided three rounds of Covid-19 relief funds to K-12 schools in the form of the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ESSER Funds). The first round provided roughly $13.2 billion to allow schools to purchase the necessary PPE as well as devices for students. The second round of funding (ESSER II fund), passed in December 2020, includes $54.3 billion in relief, with a minimum of 90% required to go directly to local school districts. The American Rescue Plan ESSER funds (ARP ESSER or ESSER III) totaled $122.8 billion.

Of course, there are a number of requirements specified in order to receive this funding. One such requirement is “Universal and correct wearing of masks.”
More and more people are speaking out about this $$$$$ and these conflicts of interests at their school board meetings. It is TIME to STAND UP and DEMAND the TRUTH from your school board members!
