Kettering, Northridge, Xenia and Fairborn get $14 million to $16 million each; Troy, Centerville and Northmont schools each have about $7 million available between the two federal relief efforts; while Bellbrook, Tipp City, Brookville and Oakwood each get about $1.8 million.
Ohio’s state plan focuses on helping schools return to fully in-person learning, providing COVID vaccination opportunities to students age 12-18, academically supporting students whose learning was disrupted by the pandemic, and meeting students’ social, emotional and behavioral needs as they return to school.
“While the pandemic caused many disruptions and illuminated certain inequities, it also highlighted the strengths of our (strategic) plan,” state superintendent Paolo DeMaria said. “As a result, we’ve remained aligned to our vision, goals and priorities even as we’ve worked together to address pandemic-related challenges. Now, with American Rescue Plan support, we can further our efforts to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of students and educators.”
