Huskies Talk Issue 2

On Tuesday Mrs. Snider reviewed the CARES ACT/ESSER funding. These funds are provided by the federal government to the states. Ohio has in turn disbursed the funds to schools through ESSER I, ESSER II, and ESSER III. Thus far these funds have provided an additional custodian, sanitation equipment and supplies, masks, dividers, school supplies, thermometers, scanners, summer remediation, and school year reading and math remediation. The district has placed orders for additional playground equipment, an outdoor learning center, and educational equipment. 

The Superintendent attended the Family Children First Zoom meeting. A presentation was given by a special education advocate who spoke about the rights of parents when dealing with special education issues.
