  • Some US schools are pulling the plug on distance learning
    • After the Chattahoochee County school district called an early end to the school year, seniors lined up one day last week to complete their graduation paperwork.

  • (Oklahoma) Federal cash, reduced costs, boost K-12 funds
    • Most of the stimulus funding that totaled $160 million for the state is being distributed to schools based on each district’s share of low-income students who qualify for the federal Title I program.

    • The money can also go towards a wide range of uses, such as remediation, reading programs, tutorial programs, and software packages.
  • (Michigan) COVID-19 Expected To Slice Deep Cuts Into K-12 Funding
    • Senator Wayne Schmidt (R-Traverse City) says early predictions show K-12 schools could lose as much as one-quarter of their funding in 2021.
