OCSD seeks community feedbackJune 21, 2021
Dear Oswego City School District Community Members,
We need your input! The Oswego City School District has received confirmation that it has been allocated and will receive $8.9 million dollars’ worth of ARP (American Rescue Plan) and $3.9 million dollars’ worth of ESSER (Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund) funds. These funds, which are governed by State and Federal regulations, are emergency relief funds for use by school districts to support students impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Per State and Federal guidance, school district must gather community feedback on how these dollars should be spent. In an effort to do so, we are inviting community members to complete a short community input survey to assist the District with how to best prioritize potential usage of these funds.
Attached is a link to our survey. All community members should feel free to answer all survey questions and submit written responses to the survey up until June 29, 2021, by no later than 5 PM. Once responses are received results will be reviewed, analyzed and shared with the community. Furthermore, this data will be utilized as the district moves forward with cementing its official plan for how these funds will be used to support our students.
Please know, the district values your input and appreciates your feedback in advance. Accordingly, we thank you for your time and participation in this survey.
Yours in Education,
Dr. Mathis Calvin III
Superintendent of Schools
