How Much Aid Will Your Schools Receive From the CARES Act?
California school districts are awaiting their share of assistance from the U.S. CARES Act, which allotted $1.6 billion to the state.
Per pupil, the stimulus bill grants around $271. But, as a result of the state’s complex funding formula, there are large variations.
“Torrance Unified in Los Angeles County, for example, will get $76 per student while Inglewood Unified, its neighbor up the 405 Freeway will receive $739,” write EdSource’s John Fensterwald and Daniel J. Willis. “Fresno Unified, the state’s fourth largest district, will book $622 per student while Clovis Unified next door will get $132 per student and Long Beach Unified, the state’s third largest district, will receive $337, an EdSource analysis reveals."
EdSource has put together an interactive, searchable database showing how much each school district is entitled to. To find out how much your school district can expect to receive, click here.
