Rep. Peter DeFazio (OR-04) recently announced that school districts in Oregon’s  Fourth Congressional District are estimated to receive hundreds of millions of dollars as a result of the American Rescue Plan, critical COVID-19 relief legislation that was signed into law last week.

“Our students are falling behind because of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic — it’s imperative that we do everything in our power to ensure our kids, teachers and support staff are returning to safe schools,” said DeFazio. “I’m proud to have helped to secure the funding needed to procure PPE, install modernized ventilation systems and acquire the necessary resources to make the return to school healthy and safe for everybody.”  

The funds would help give K-12 schools the resources they need to reopen safely, provide safe in-person instruction to more students and address learning loss and the significant impacts the pandemic has had on students’ educational and emotional well-being.
