    The focus for the use of the funds and distribution formula are outlined in the 2020–21 budget package, with focus to use the funds to support transitional kindergarten through 12th grade pupil academic achievement and mitigate learning loss related to COVID-19 school closures.

    • Providing additional academic services for pupils, such as diagnostic assessments of pupil learning needs, intensive instruction for addressing gaps in core academic skills, additional instructional materials or supports, or devices or connectivity for the provision of in-classroom and distance learning.
    • Providing integrated pupil supports to address other barriers to learning, such as the provision of health, counseling, or mental health services, professional development opportunities to help teachers and parents support pupils in distance-learning contexts, access to school breakfast and lunch programs, or programs to address pupil trauma and social-emotional learning.
