On March 11th, 2021, the American Rescue Plan Act, also known as the $1.9 Trillion COVID Stimulus Plan, was signed into law. One of the areas this plan covers is school support. In particular the bill set aside nearly $130 billion to help schools K-12.
How is that money going to be spent? It remains to be seen, but according to the Washington Post some of it would go to improving ventilation in schools. School funding can also be used for personal protective equipment and reducing class sizes. While improving the latter items will of course help the situation, according to the CDC, ASHRAE, and a handful of other authoritative sources, improving the ventilation in schools will make the most difference in providing a safe environment and reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
