As the coronavirus pandemic continues to touch lives across the country and around the world, we're constantly looking for ways to keep our members informed with resources. If you're feeling the emotional and mental weight of this moment, you're not alone. BVEA is here for you.

Below are some resources to assist during our times of need:

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was enacted on March 27, 2020 – a $2 trillion package of assistance measures that include direct payment to families, loans for small businesses, supports for businesses and funding for education. Information on the four education funding streams from the CARES Act is provided here: the Coronavirus Relief Fund, the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund, Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund and nutrition.

School and District Support from CDE

CDE’s top priority is the health and safety of all students, educators and communities in Colorado. The department has compiled resources below about Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) to help provide guidance to schools and districts. Commissioner of Education Katy Anthes is also sending communications to superintendents and BOCES directors.

Schools and districts should work directly with their local public health agency and the Colorado Department of Health and Environment (CDPHE) for guidance on COVID-19.
