COVID-Relief Funds Help Students Rebound

COVID-Relief Funds Help Students Rebound

Funding in Action 

You may have heard the federal government distributed millions of dollars to schools to address COVID-related expenses. These one-time funds are helping schools respond to the pandemic’s impact on student academic progress and social-emotional well-being.

Congress is providing these funds through the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Act (ESSER).

Isolation during the pandemic was hard on students' mental health and social-emotional development.  Thanks to these federal funds, we have expanded two partnerships in Highline that provide in-school and after-school learning and enrichment opportunities for students. 

Team Read

We partnered with Team Read in 2016 and thanks to the federal-relief dollars, we expanded the program to support additional students. Team Read pairs trained teen coaches with elementary students who need extra support with reading. They meet for one-on-one tutoring after school. 

During distance learning, personal interaction was challenging. Students had fewer social interactions and opportunities to get one-on-one coaching and instruction. Team Read is helping to bridge the gap. While elementary students get extra reading help, high school students develop key career and life skills that support their transition into college and future careers.

Arts Corps 

Arts Corps pairs artists with classroom teachers to lead in-depth visual art lessons. The federal-relief dollars allowed us to expand our long-standing partnership—which started in 2011. Now we offer the program in more classrooms than ever before. 

When students were in distance learning, art was a difficult subject to teach. It was hard to ensure that all students had the materials they needed to participate. Arts Corps is helping us bring arts programming back into the classroom so students get access to high-quality arts instruction.
