They’ll vote on it Monday.

Under new COVID relief bill, districts are expected to get 4x what they received under CAREAS. So supts, just multiply what you got under CARES by 4 and you will know your new fed allocation. We expect the $ to be available for drawn down in late Jan/early Feb.

Breaking down the $900B stimulus package and $1.4T omnibus bill is from Politico.
New: The stimulus deal will provide over $50 billion — an average of $1K for student — for public schools, distributed like Title I. But there's no money to fill state budgets gaps, meaning some or all of that could be cancelled out via state cuts https://t.co/lw4q4L5QS5
