Schools Need Resources Now To Reopen This Fall

There are numerous critical needs children, families, educators and schools are facing during the COVID-19 crisis. While Congress has provided some relief to our nation’s children, families and the educational system in previous legislative packages, there are additional needs that must be met before the school year starts in the Fall. National PTA is asking Congress to address five key areas in the next COVID-19 relief package –
1) funding to reopen schools safely this fall,
2) increased support for Title I and IDEA,
3) dedicated funding for remote learning,
4) more resources for family engagement in education, and 5) increased funding for child nutrition programs.

Schools need resources now to plan and prepare for the fall, please contact your Members of Congress today and ask them to provide the critical funding needed to reopen schools this fall.
