Community input sought on Atchison school funding

(KAIR)--An Open Community Forum is planned for Monday regarding a survey launched online by the Atchison Public Schools of USD 409.

According to a release from Superintendent Dr. Renee Nugent, the school district is receiving Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief funds, known as ESSER, which will be used “to execute learning initiatives for all K-12 students.”

According to the release, the survey and forum stem from the Kansas Department of Education requiring “all school districts to develop plans based on three guiding principles, the short-and long-term needs of the district, consultation from stakeholder groups, and evidence-based interventions.”

The release says all staff, students, families, and community partners may provide feedback through the ESSERS Feedback Survey, that is now posted online.

According to the release, “the information garnered from the survey results will help the District focus on the high-priority areas for ESSERS spending.”

The Community Forum is set for Monday morning at 7:15 in the Board of Education Meeting Room, located at 626 Commercial Street, in Atchison.
