CARES Act Notification to Private Schools
(Click here for Printable PDF)

October 5, 2020

Dear Private School Officials,

As a result of a recent US District Court Decision, the CARES Act methodology for determining private school proportionate share has changed. All LEAs are required by law to reach out to all private schools that serve students who reside in their geographic boundaries, regardless of the private school’s location. In addition, calculations for proportionate share will be based on public school and private school poverty counts from Fall 2018. This applies to the following grants issued in Georgia:

•    CARES ESSER Formula Grants
•    CARES SEA Reserve: Equitable Services
•    CARES SEA Reserve: CTAE- Ag
o    Extended Day,  Extended Year, Young Farmers, Area Teachers
•    CARES SEA Reserve: CTE
o    Extended Day,  Extended Year, Supervision, Youth Apprenticeships
•    CARES SEA Reserve: Special Education

All CARES grants are intended to offset impacts related to COVID19. If your school is interested in participating in these CARES funds, please print and complete the bottom portion of this letter by October 14, 2020, sign and date it, and return to Laura Grimwade, Title I Director, via e-mail or click the link below. If you have any additional questions, please contact Ms. Grimwade as soon as possible at [email protected], or by phone at 770-860-4240.

We look forward to hearing from you.
