Marion Community Schools will use federal COVID relief money to expand planned facilities projects over the next two summers.

At last week’s regular board meeting, Chief Financial Officer Bob Schultz said through three rounds of Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding and the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund, the district will receive a total of $26.4 million in COVID relief funding. While some of these funds have already been received and spent, Schultz said the district is no longer going to differentiate between rounds of funding and will just look at it as ESSER funding overall.
