Strafford School District Survey

We want to get community feedback on how to allocate some of our grant funds. We will start with how to spend the ESSER CARES III funds. We must allocate 20% of the funds for academics and close the learning gaps caused by COVID. The funds can also address issues related to COVID or anything that COVID exasperated. Please share your thoughts and ask other community members to respond too!

We will start using the responses on January 23rd and the survey will be open for us to consider further responses through February 27th.

Thank you,
Strafford School District, SAU 105
