The extensive guidance answers many questions raised by school board members. This guidance is in addition to ODE’s COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions page. ODE has been exceptionally responsive to school district information needs, and the FAQ page is updated as often as twice daily.
ODE also offered Student Investment Account guidance on March 20. That document details changes to some procedures in light of the coronavirus disruptions and the removal of some requirements.
Districts can submit applications initially without school board approval. Board approval and public comment opportunities will still be necessary to complete the grant planning steps.
ODE has also canceled the volunteer Quality Assurance and Learning Panels to review the applications.
