The Foundation for Success
As we prepare for the next school year in the Sayville School District, we are seeking public input on the development of our plan for the use of the federal funds awarded to our school district to support and sustain the safe, full reopening and operation of our schools. As you may know, federal grant funds for the district have been awarded from the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRSSA) and the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) fund to help schools address the impacts of COVID-19.
