Rep. Peters Announces Millions in Funding for San Diego Unified, Other Schools Reopening

March 18th, 2021

Rep. Scott Peters announced Wednesday that over $340 million in federal grants will be available for San Diego Unified and millions of dollars for other schools that are reopening in his district.

The money comes from the American Rescue Plan Act that Congressional Democrats passed last week.

The $1.9 trillion stimulus plan is intended to aid individual Americans, small businesses, local governments and schools that suffered during the coronavirus pandemic.

Here’s what different school districts will get:

  • San Diego Unified School District — $342,596,000
  • Poway Unified School District — $19,309,000
  • Coronado Unified School District — $1,472,000
  • San Dieguito Union High School District — $6,289,000

“Parents and children want a return to in-person school and they want it done safely,” said Peters. “The funds ensured by the American Rescue Plan Act will give teachers and staff much-needed flexibility to do what needs to be done to safely welcome students in the classroom and boost virtual teaching capabilities.”

“These funds give us reason to remain hopeful on the way back to normalcy,” he said.

Schools in San Diego County are cleared to reopen now that the county has been reclassified into the red tier of coronavirus infection.
