The Marmaton Valley school district expects to get about four times as much CARES funding in the next round of distribution to help schools impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
Superintendent Kim Ensminger said the district was given a rough estimate of about $242,000 in the next round of funding. She expects the money to be released to the district in February or March.
The first distribution brought about $55,000 to the district, which mostly was used for sanitation and disinfection products as well as personal protection equipment and “hot spots” to provide internet services to students who did not have such access at home.
