Illinois unveils a $ 7 billion plan to assist colleges after the pandemic

CHICAGO – Governor JB Pritzker announced a billion dollar plan to help get students back into class after months of virtual and hybrid learning.

There is $ 7 billion federal funding to be made available to K-12 schools over a three-year period. The funding is part of the American Relief Plan. During a press conference on Wednesday, he said the funds will help increase resources both inside and outside the classroom.

“With these huge new resources comes a major challenge that most districts have never faced. How we can avoid the last 12 months becoming a lost year for our students, ”said Governor Pritzker.

Each school district received the Renewal of Learning Guide, which was filled with ideas from experts and stakeholders to help school districts renew their learning.

In addition to the guide, Illinois state education agencies will focus on four main goals to support schools, including tutoring and promoting enrollment in both early childhood programs and higher education.
