WNYMCS ESSER, ARP, and CSP Grants
Since 2019, WNYMCS has undergone a series of public meetings as part of our monthly Board of Trustees Meetings which sought transparency for grant monies to assist our school in operating procedures. COVID-19 created unprecedented experience for everyone and its impact on schools was greatly asupported through four key grant streams: Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER 1, ESSER 2), and the American Rescue Plan (ARP 1, and ARP 2).
Localized from our NY State Charter School Office, we also qualified for the Charter Schools Program Response to COVID-19 Grant.
In addition to our public meetings, we have assisted our school community with this website translation--especially for our Spanish speaking families--in order to better understand these grants and collaborate with us during public meetings. All digital documents can be furnished as hard copies or in Braille by request, as well. We are always willing to make any accommodations for individuals with disabilities and/or assisting those who are legally blind for us to read the grants and seek collaboration over the phone or in person.
Please see the attached budgets and planned use of these grant monies as led by our Board of Trustees and Leadership Team. Our Board Parent Liaison was also ready to receive feedback and communicate any ideas to the Board. There is also a video from Dr. Rick Jetter for you to view in order to understand the strategic opportunity our community has for providing input and staying informed.
We are open to continuing the collaboration with parents as these grant monies will continue on through 2024. If you have any input, need questions answered, or wish to speak with one of our school officials, please call us at 716-842-NAVY.
