As a result of a recent US District Court Decision, the CARES Act methodology for determining private school proportionate share has changed. All LEAs are required by law to reach out to all private schools that serve students who reside in their geographic boundaries, regardless of the private school’s location. In addition, calculations for proportionate share will be based on public school and private school poverty counts from Fall 2018. This applies to the following grants issued in Georgia:

CARES ESSER Formula Grants

CARES SEA Reserve: Equitable Services

CARES SEA Reserve: CTAE- Ag

          o Extended Day, Extended Year, Young Farmers, Area Teachers

CARES SEA Reserve: CTE

           o Extended Day, Extended Year, Supervision, Youth Apprenticeships

CARES SEA Reserve: Special Education

All CARES grants are intended to offset impacts related to COVID19. If your school is interested in participating in these CARES funds or if you have any additional questions, please contact the LEA CARES Coordinator, Tonja Healey as soon as possible at thealey@brooks.k12.ga.us, (229 - 588-2340 or by completing a short CARES Act Equitable Services Survey by clicking HERE
