There are government funds that you can use for PE technology. The CARES Act provides Coronavirus financial aid for K-12 public schools in need of technology. Within this $2 trillion legislation, K-12 public schools are allocated $122 billion for emergency funding called the ESSER Fund to respond to the impact that COVID-19 has placed on school programs. While the deadline to spend the first round of ESSER funding (Sept. 30, 2022) has expired, deadlines for the next two rounds of ESSER funding are still in the future:
- ESSER II ($54 billion): Sept. 30, 2023 and
- ESSER III ($122 billion): Sept. 30, 2024
There is an additional $17 billion dollars for private schools and higher education. As a health and physical education teacher, you may ask for a portion of the $30.8 billion dollars if it is directed towards technology. And, there’s little to no paperwork required. Different from grants, this emergency funding is available now for PE and health teachers.
Physical education and health teachers can easily ask for these emergency funds to satisfy needs in equipment and technology that are necessary to provide an exceptional learning environment. One example is that of Health/PE Curriculum Specialist, Adam Otstot, Hanover County Public Schools, Virginia. He asked his district’s school board for over $150,000 to purchase iPads, Heart Zones Move and Heart Zones ePE technology solutions. His request was granted because this technology meets the tech requirements of the CARES emergency funds requirements. Read more about Adams’ story and his “8 Tips to Success” here.
