(Clarinda) -- Clarinda school officials received an update on where the district currently sits with its COVID-19 relief funds. Meeting in regular session Wednesday evening, School Finance Director and Board Secretary Nancy McKinnon updated the Clarinda School Board on the remaining balances and expenditures of federal relief funds allocated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. These include funds from Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief, or ESSER, and the Governor's Emergency Education Relief, or GEER. Regarding ESSER funds, McKinnon says they have allocated all of ESSER I and II -- nearly $700,000 -- and a portion of ESSER III funds. Of the just over $1 million in ESSER III funds distributed to the district, she says roughly $788,000 remains. But, a portion of that will need to be set aside for retention bonuses that will be included in the December payroll.
