• Pandemic Funding header

  • Throughout the pandemic, Winchester Public Schools received funding to address the impact that COVID-19 has had on our schools and to support the long-term work of education recovery.

    Through this funding, WPS is promoting safe school operations and equity-driven, sustainable, evidence-based programs to serve students—especially those who are the furthest from opportunity—and continues to strengthen teaching and learning. 

Guiding Principles

  • The following WPS guiding principles were considered in funding allocation:

    Prioritize opening schools for all students.

    Build structures and capacity to meet the academic, social, emotional and behavioral needs of students, families and staff that will “outlive” the federal financial support.

    • Recognize that all students experienced loss due to COVID 19.
    • Personalize support to students based on their individual needs.

    Maximize the ability to use federal money to support capital improvement for future generations.

    Minimize the impact on future operating budgets.
