By John Forester | July 27, 2020

From The Wheeler Report . . .

Governor Evers announced 155 local education agencies (LEAs) are eligible for funding through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund. According to the release, “Based on recommendations from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and in consultation with State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor, the governor outlined eligibility criteria for schools most significantly impacted by COVID-19 based on economic disadvantage, access to personal computing devices, access to internet, and students’ score on the English Language Arts Assessment. Wisconsin’s three tribal schools will also receive the same per pupil payment as the 155 LEAs. The GEER Fund is in addition to the $174.8 million that Wisconsin received through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER Fund).” (Map)(GEER Eligible Schools).
