K-12 COVID RELIEFESSER III AUDIT
CONGRESS GAVE $1.49 BILLION TO WISCONSIN SCHOOLS
The coronavirus pandemic was a 2-year catastrophe for children. Students suffered through virtual schooling, quarantined teachers, and emotional misery. Academic results, the lowest this century, still have not recovered.
After sending $860 million to help Wisconsin public schools manage through spring 2021, Congress sent a final $1.49 billion to get students back on track.
The goal? Do whatever it takes to catch kids up by September 2024.
The problem? No one knows how schools have directed it or not directed it…until now.
