School Board Considering Updated Plan for COVID-19 Funds –

Moore County Schools administrators are asking the board to redirect some of the district’s COVID-19 relief funding to cover shortfalls in its local budget for the upcoming year.

The district is just over a year into the spending plan that the board approved for that money last spring. Moore County Schools received a total of $25.3 million over several rounds of federal stimulus funding, and has until 2024 to use it.
