A welcome infusion of funding

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools is receiving federal money for COVID-related needs. So far these funds supported remote learning with one-to-one ChromeBooks and iPads, curriculum, and hotspots for student internet access. Funds have also provided PPE and upgraded HVAC systems to keep our students and staff safe in our school buildings. In addition, these funds allow us to offer Camp CMS during the summer.

Recovering from unfinished learning will take a multi-year effort. These funds will allow targeted interventions for those students needing the most support – both academic and emotional.

It’s important to remember that the funds are restricted and – even more important – one-time money. More details about how CMS is allocating federal COVID funds are available here >>
