DPI has created a webpage titled COVID Response and Relief Planning Recommendations, a resource page to assist districts in the use of the one-time federal COVID relief funds. The webpage includes a number of categories vetted by experts as allowable costs under federal relief funds and will be updated regularly. From the webpage introduction:

“As schools return to on-campus classes, local education agencies (LEAs) should assess their students’ needs in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic response. Specifically, LEAs should identify and address opportunity gaps that were likely widened during the pandemic, and use one-time funding to provide targeted supports to students to accelerate their learning to close those gaps. Supports may include direct services to students, professional development, curriculum materials, or maintaining infrastructure. The DPI developed the following recommendations to assist LEAs in planning how to use funds from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSA Act) and future relief funding.”
