Dear Washington County Community,
As part of the American Rescue Plan, Washington County Schools is applying to receive approximately $11.9 million through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER) 3.0 to address the ongoing impact from the pandemic. These funds may be used for one-time expenditures and should primarily focus on supporting students' academic needs in order to accelerate learning after the COVID-19 pandemic. These funds may be spent over the next three years.
I would appreciate the opportunity to engage with members of our community as we work together to complete the application and district plan for these funds. To that end, I have scheduled three in-person community forums to provide everyone an overview of the process as well as an opportunity to listen to the voice of our community:
July 19: Daniel Boone High School Little Theater at 6:00 pm
July 20: David Crockett High School Little Theater at 6:00 pm
July 22: WCDE Central Office Conference Room at 12:00 pm
405 West College Street, Jonesborough
(water/soft drinks provided)
I look forward to the opportunity to receive input from everyone who can attend.
Mr. Jerry S. Boyd
Superintendent of Schools
Washington County Schools
