HARRISBURG – Rep. Frank Ryan (R-Lebanon) announced today that Lebanon High School will receive about $142,000 in additional Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding for historically disadvantaged students.
In all, about $17 million in additional federal aid is going to 220 local education agencies and school districts statewide for underserved students and is being administered through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund.
“I am pleased that Lebanon High School is receiving this much-needed funding to improve its educational services for economically disadvantaged students,” said Ryan. “This pandemic has placed additional burdens on our families and education systems, and the necessity to engage in remote learning and other measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 has made that burden heavier – particularly for the economically disadvantaged and those with special needs.”
The funding will address the needs of approximately 180,000 students across the Commonwealth at schools designated for Additional Targeted Support and Improvement under the federal Every Student Succeeds Act.
