There are numerous critical needs children, families, educators and schools are facing during the COVID-19 crisis. While Congress has provided some relief to our nation’s children, families and the educational system in previous legislative packages, there are additional needs that must be met during this pandemic. National PTA is asking Congress to address to four key areas in the next COVID-19 relief package, referred to as “C-4” or the “fourth relief bill,” – 1) family engagement, 2) remote learning, 3) support of students with disabilities and 4) child nutrition.
Our association knows there will continue to be emerging needs and long-term impacts from COVID-19 that will need to be addressed through congressional action. National PTA is committed to gathering more information on these needs and will have additional requests for Congress.
In the interim, we ask that you please contact your contact your Senators and Representative today and ask them to provide federal resources for family engagement, remote learning, special education and child nutrition programs in the next relief bill.
