Dear Colleagues,

Thank you to those who able to attend either of the webinars last week on Equitable Services and the CARES Act. A special thank you to Catapult Learning for sponsoring these webinars.

Today’s mailing includes a PDF of the slides used in the webinars, a follow up on funding and the CARES Act, and a CARES Act consultation checklist that also includes a listing of the allowable uses of the funds under the ESSER Fund of the CARES Act. A link to a recording of last week’s webinars is found at www.equitableservicesmdec.com/webinars .

Over the next few weeks, I will continue to provide you with new resources on the CARES Act and the ongoing services your students should continue to receive under existing ESSA and IDEA programs. I hope you will find them helpful.

As always, you can choose the “Ask Michelle” button on my website to send me a question, or email me at michelle.doyle.essa@gmail.com .

Good luck to you during CARES consultation. Stay safe and healthy!

Michelle
