Here’s the scoop for the week…

Clarification on summer school funding:

The announcement from MDE on Tuesday, May 18, that $75 million of federal funds are now going to be allocated to schools for summer school has caused some confusion. This is additional money from the American Rescue Plan beyond the $4.00 per student per hour you have been told previously you will receive for students attending summer school. Here is a link for you to see the allocations that MDE sent on May 18.

This new round of funding can be used this summer, throughout the 2021-2022 school year and through summer 2022. You may use this funding during the school year according to the guidelines provided by MDE for its use. 

MASA/MSHSL Executive Officers May meeting synopsis:

  • The MASA/MSHSL executive officers will meet quarterly during the 2021-2022 school year.
