The School District of Lee County is asking fr public input on ways to spend its portion of funding from the U.S. Department of Education.

The Department of Education’s ESSER III Relief Fund will be giving SDLC $189,170,730. At least 20% of that funding must address the impacts of learning loss and research evidence-based intervention. Also, an Instructional Continuity Plan is being written on disruptions to in-person learning.

However, the district wants to know the public thinks the rest of the funds should be spent in a way that helps individual students but also supports employees. There are multiple ways to make your voice heard:

  1. Read the allowable expense report for ESSER III and submit a comment by following this link.
  2. You can take a survey until December 15.
  3. Virtual information sessions will be held on December 9 at 5 p.m. and December 10 at noon.
