E.3. Corona-virus Relief Funds (CRF)

We are looking at the following ways to use our CRF funds. Remember we need to have items/services invoiced, paid for, and on site by December in order to use these funds. And, we didn’t find out about this money until September. Additionally, there are only specific things we can use the funds for, and they must be Corona-virus related.  I have received input from staff on what they would need to be able to effectively deliver virtual instruction should we move to Phase 3, and have been working hand-in-hand with Josh and Lindsey from the RESD to ensure we are meeting all stipulations of the grant money we  have available. I did make a decision to purchase some laptops on Wednesday as the spot bid closed (which means we didn’t have to go out for bids). We were able to get touchscreen laptops for $614; beginning Thursday, the state price for the same laptop moved to $1,328.42. We ordered 100. The attached document is a draft of what we’re looking to use the grant money for.

If we are able to get a zero-mill increase extension, it could net us around $3.2 million in actual repair dollars.
