USD 225 Fowler Schools Community Survey
Thank you for taking time out of your day to provide feedback on the utilization of the ESSER III monies. This information will be used in our grant application as it relates to the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III) provided by the American Rescue Plan.
This grant is provided to all schools throughout the country to respond and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on students and communities. We are anticipating approximately $59,000 for three years. Notification will be made as funds become available.
ESSER III grant funds have specific guidelines to be implemented for student learning. Some of the questions are required and others are exploring what interests we might have. With your input, we can prioritize our needs based on the top three areas of interest.
Please take the time to review these areas and provide feedback to the prioritization you believe would meet the needs of our community and school.
Thank you again for working with us to make USD 225 the best place for students, staff, and families. Together we are a team!
SURVEY WILL CLOSE ON MONDAY, OCTOBER 11, 2021
Pledge example: $0.10 per book x 250 books read by the school = donation of $25.00.
Flat donations will also be gladly accepted as well.
