American Rescue Plan Strategic Opportunities
The WNYMCS Board of Trustees and Commandant, Catherine Oldenburg, are committed to a collaborative effort with community stakeholders for the grant monies available to our school according to the Federal Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (ESSER 2) and American Rescue Plan (ARP) Grants.
As a result of two budgetary grant sources from the Federal Government and New York State governance, a series of virtual public hearings (in addition to our regular monthly Board of Trustee meetings) will take place on August 19, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in order to continue the financial discussions that our Commandant and Board of Trustees have been engaged in since last year.
If you are interested in attending one of the two virtual public hearings, please contact our school for the Zoom link. A draft plan and video session from our public hearings are posted below and we look forward to your engagement in our school.
Below, you will also find our FINAL approved plan which was then submitted to NYSED which includes a Board of Trustees approval as we now await approval from the state.
FUTURE DATES OF PUBLIC HEARINGS and MEETINGS for ARP Grant updates and progress reports to the community include:
October 21, 2021 at 1:00 and 5:00 p.m.
November 18, 2021 at 1:00 and 5:00 p.m.
