(Indianapolis, Ind.) – Area schools are getting relief from the Indiana Department of Education.

Indiana schools will receive nearly $1.8 billion as part of the third round of federal stimulus dollars (American Rescue Plan Act).

Allocations for nearby public schools are listed below:

  • Sunman-Dearborn Community School Corporation - $2,109,280.08
  • South Dearborn Community School Corporation - $3,352,615.27
  • Lawrenceburg Community School Corporation - $2,097,480.93
  • Franklin County Community School Corporation - $2,459,885.82

With the funding, schools can reimburse approved expenses incurred through September 2024 that address some of the greatest challenges schools continue to face as a result of COVID-19.

Per federal requirements, schools must use at least 20 percent of these funds to support accelerated learning opportunities to make up for lost instructional time.

“Over the past year, this is the third round of federal funding allowing many Indiana schools access to unprecedented resources to sustainably invest in their future,” said Dr. Katie Jenner, Indiana Secretary of Education. “While the needs may vary from one school to the next, it’s critical that schools are strategically planning to maximize their return on investment, in turn achieving the greatest outcomes for students.”
