On March 11, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (H.R. 1319) was signed into law. The $1.9 trillion package is intended to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, including the public health and economic impacts. Those funds were distributed to multiple agencies within each state. The Schley County School System received $2,002,523.98. This amount was determined by the Georgia Department of Education.
After weeks of planning and research, the Schley County Board of Education has created a budget to best use these funds. We are sharing this budget with all stakeholders in two formats, a list of dollar amounts and what will be purchased as well as a list of focus areas and the percentage of funds allocated to each.
