A newcomer is not muted!
Sarah Tario
37:06
My only question would be: how flexible is it if needs change moving forward? It's a constantly moving target, so will we be able to make changes to allocations?
R Cooper
38:33
Re. Timeline, If the district wanted to BAR funds now, How would it work for salaries, since salaries in 24301 for the rest of the year are only encumbrances, and won't be fully addressed until the final RfR?
Carol.Culver
38:33
Hi everyone, the memo Louie is referring to was attached to the webinar invitation.
Rob Hunter
39:22
What if ESSER I funds aren’t yet spent or are encumbered. For example, our ESSER I is encumbered to pay our students’ monthly hotspot devices charges.
Jvanna Hanks II
39:33
Does this include private school proportionate share funds must be spent down - as they are not included in our ESSER II?
A. Robert Jessen
40:02
Why does the ESSER II funds come with a debit?
Carol.Culver
40:15
@Jvanna -- Equitable services for private schools are not part of ESSER II.

Harry Browne
43:10
Agreed - thanks, Louie!
Carmen Spann
43:33
spend down of ESSER I before spending ESSER II, is that by each District or does EVERYONE have to spend down ESSER I first before any ESSER II funds?
Shawna Russell
44:32
If the application changes several months down the road, will you require an amendment to the application?
R Cooper
44:58
Got it, thanks Louie!
Christy Boyd
45:18
I only see ours
Jvanna Hanks II
46:21
Carol yes I am asking about unspent funds from equitable services holding up the district
cparrino
48:47
When are award letters with amounts expected to be received so that we can plan according this year and next?
A. Robert Jessen
49:41
Never mind
Damon Terry
50:19
if we carryover ESSER I into 2021-2022, do we need to complete a new application.
Keri James
50:54
So we can use funds for additional teachers (SPED, Interventionist, additional cafeteria workers)? Also, the new parts of our schools have cooling-heating systems that we were able to implement MERV 13 filters. However, the original school does not have those systems so we are going to have to purchase individual air filtration systems for the classrooms. Can we use ESSER 2 to upgrade those systems? Finally, we need to do core upgrades (servers, switches, etc.) so when our secondary come in hybrid we can have students 1:1 with their devices and have the capability to do both virtual and in person.
Martin Romine
51:56
Can you use these funds to replace the HVAC sytem in a building that uses swamp coolers that cannot filter the air
Keri James
53:02
@cparrino the memo says to upload the ESSER allocation page from PED.
Brian Stacy
53:32
Since we found out that we could use funds for replacing HVAC, we are going to encumber the rest of the ESSER 1 and add it to ESSER 2 to help offset the cost which we will have operational funds for. Is this doable?
Carol.Culver
53:53
The application link on our webpage is incorrect. Here is the link: https://eui.ped.state.nm.us/sites/ESEAConApp/ESSER/SitePages/Home.aspx
Rhiannon Crespin
55:11
Can the funding be used to purchase/setup portables in able to increase square footage, therefore allowing for greater social distancing
CT’s iPhone
55:37
is there a possibility that there is a credit to the SEG for ESSR 2 for the coming year, like last year?
Dale Jackson
56:59
could this be used on alarm system?
Angela Feathers
57:16
Going back to security- could it be used for fencing?
A. Robert Jessen
58:09
Confirming, please, that ESSER I can be used for outdoor classrooms, as well as ESSER II.
Jasmin Arias
58:49
Very cool idea Kristie
Sarah Tario
59:16
Sounds like what the district did down south with a mobile nurse/health "flo"
Susan Passell
59:29
Louie, can you set up a sharing session on how a variety of districts are thinking of spending these dollars? I’d benefit from hearing what others are thinking.
Jasmin Arias
59:51
I agree
Michelle Padilla
01:00:28
I love the idea of sharing session!
Leslie
01:01:09
Ditto the sharing session
Susan Passell
01:01:20
Could we pay for a Family Assistance Program - like an Employee Assistance Program - but therapy for students and their families?
Michelle Padilla
01:01:35
Could we utilize funds to hiring reading interventionists/specialists?
Katie Rarick
01:02:34
Will the ESSER I funds be increased based on 40th day numbers, similar to Title I at the end of the year?
Keri James
01:04:08
We need another couple of suburbans just for the delivery of food back and forth to our students on the reservation and to the county line every day. Our fleet vehicles all have over 100,000 miles on them. Can we purchase additional fleet for the required food deliveries?
CT
01:04:42
Fencing and building improvements are allowed even if the school does not own the building?
Angela Feathers
01:06:02
Thank you very much!
Rob Hunter
01:06:10
Does it apply to existing FTE, for those taking on additional responsibilities in line with learning needs during pandemic?
Janet Grice
01:06:39
Are Cafeteria staff salaries allowable under ESSER II ?
CT’s iPhone
01:07:46
Louie, Gabe, Carol, et al; Thank you for all you do!
Glenda Leonard
01:08:18
What is the Indirect Cost Rate for 2021-2022? Is it still 4.40?
Carol.Culver
01:09:42
PED indirect costs rates by LEA are posted here: https://webnew.ped.state.nm.us/bureaus/administrative-services/accounting/
A. Robert Jessen
01:13:03
Teach them to fish Louie. Teach.
Rob Hunter
01:14:54
I thought about the answer regarding existing FTE, and we are not necessarily planning to provide additional compensation.
