Putnam County School System is being allocated $20,676,389.97 of ESSER 3.0 funds to address learning loss and COVID-19 relief. These funds are one-time or short-term expenditures. 20% ($4,135,277.99) of these funds must be utilized to address learning loss due to COVID-19. We must be strategic in how we use the funds to ensure that decisions made can be sustained once the money has been spent.
