The district has received notification of the award of a third grant-funded program authorized under The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act - The Governor's Emergency Educational Relief (GEER) Fund in the amount of $832,032.00. The GEER Fund for Coronavirus Response and Prevention provides funds to elevate the cleaning regiment necessary to create a healthier learning environment for students, teachers, and staff by maintaining a supply of adequate cloth face coverings, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizer, and other personal protective equipment (PPE), as well as deep cleaning equipment. The allocation for each fund, which must be proportionally shared with charter and non-public schools, was determined by the Florida Department of Education based on the FY19 Title I, Part A formula. 

There are no matching requirements for the CARES Act program. Awarded funds under the GEER Fund must be fully obligated by June 30, 2021 or earlier, if so identified by The Department of Education. A full copy of the application Toolkit will be available for review in the division of Leading and Learning. Board approval was granted to write and submit this grant on June 30, 2020.
