Senate Bill 2176 would reimburse parents of students who previously received in-person instruction, but who now are receiving remote instruction by parents because of COVID. It would provide $1,500 in funds to the family for the first child, and $500 for each child thereafter and be entirely financed from federal COVID funding, not the state budget.
SB2176 is a bill long overdue. Parents have needed financial help for instructing their children during COVID for a long time and this bill seeks to remedy that situation. We need your help encouraging your Senator to vote “Yes” on Senate Bill 2176.
Please send a message asap, urging your Senator to support this bill. The system will automatically send your request to your own Senator, based on your address.
Now is the time to speak up to support families here in North Dakota. They have borne these COVID costs long enough and need to have some relief!
