The state education board approved the dispersal list Thursday. The state Department of Education is required to hold back $425 million to spend on various programs, from summer enrichment to after-school care.
School districts must spend a fifth of this money on remediation of learning loss during the COVID-19 pandemic. There are few limits on the rest of the money.
