The Department of Education released new non-regulatory guidance to help Department grantees and program participants remove barriers to restoring teaching and learning environments and to expediting the recovery process for all those impacted by the recent hurricanes.
The newly released guidance provides support to state and local educational agencies, Bureau of Indian Education-funded schools, postsecondary institutions and other Department grantees and program participants in a variety of ways, while also covering topics specific to program areas.
Examples of such supports include:
- Flexibility on reporting deadlines, timelines for grant-funded activities and maintenance of fiscal effort or matching requirements.
- Potential alternatives and strategies for providing program services after disruption.
- Suggested methods for ensuring continuity of services and communication with program participants.
