Sikeston R-6 School District Accepting Public Feedback on Spending Federal Pandemic Assistance Funds

The Sikeston R-6 School District is looking for input from their stakeholders on how to spend federal pandemic assistance funds the district will get in the near future. On Tuesday, the Sikeston R-6 District posted a survey directed to the parents of their students, guardians, staff and community members, asking them to rate the importance of certain opportunities for the district to spend the anticipated American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) funds totaling a projected $10.5 million. The survey is asking all involved to rate the following topics by level of importance, ranging from very important to not important. Some of the topics the district is seeking public input about are academic interventions; additional staff; air filtration systems; anti-bullying programs; bleachers and handrails at Field House, among other topics.
