Federal COVID Relief Spending
Northeastern Wayne Schools: Federal COVID-19 Relief Spending
Across Indiana, $2.8 billion in federal funding has been allocated to local school districts to help address schools’ COVID-19 related needs.
Here at Northeastern Wayne Schools, we have been allocated $2,991,617.07 from three rounds of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding – which is based on the district’s share of the state’s Title I allocation – and federal Governor's Emergency Education Relief (GEER) funds.
Over the last two years, we developed plans for how to strategically and sustainably deploy these funds to successfully accelerate student learning, support our educators, make a sustainable impact on innovation across our schools, and update technology and other infrastructure.

Through our locally-developed plans, we are investing in –
- Learning loss recovery due to the implications of the pandemic
- Purchasing technology for both student use and infrastructure
- Sustaining initiatives that lost revenue due to the pandemic
Looking ahead, we plan to continue to work to accelerate learning and to support technology updates. Per federal law, we have through September 2022 to encumber the first round of ESSER funding and through September 2023 and September 2024, respectively, to encumber the second and third rounds of their ESSER grants.
