Teacher and School Support Staff COVID Grant

The Michigan Department of Treasury recently released details regarding the process for teachers and school support staff to access the one-time Teacher and School Support Staff COVID Grant included in Public Act 166 of 2020. Public Act 166 of 2020 makes provision for a one-time $500.00 payment to eligible K-12 teaching staff and a one-time $250.00 payment to eligible K-12 school support staff, to recognize the additional time spent outside of normal working hours and additional costs teachers have incurred because of the school closure in the spring of 2020.

Teachers will need to meet the following eligibility requirements:

  1. Prior to the period of school closure in 2019-2020, the K-12 teacher performed at least 75% of their standard instructional workload in a brick-and-mortar classroom at the District.
  2. During the period of school closure in 2019-2020, the K-12 teacher developed tools and methods to deliver distance learning, take-home packets, or other methods described in the District's continuity of learning plan.
  3. The K-12 teacher certifies to the District, via Form 5734, that he or she worked additional time spent outside of normal working hours, experienced hazardous conditions, or incurred additional costs related to ensuring students could effectively participate in the District's continuity of learning plan. This form will be reviewed by the district for eligibility.
    If the teacher was employed in a part-time capacity, the hazard pay will be prorated to meet their portion fulfilled.

School support staff will need to meet the following eligibility requirements:

  1. During the period of school closure in 2019-2020, the school support staff (a K-12 full-time or part-time para-professional, aide, or non-instructional staff) performed at least 75% of their workload in a brick-and-mortar school building at a district.
  2. Meets the school support staff statutory requirements to receive grant funding. For a list of school support staff positions please refer to the paraprofessional/aide assignments beginning at p. 41 and non-instructional assignment codes from page 43 through 49 of the Registry of Educational Personnel Data Field Descriptions Manual, which is available at the following webpage: https://bit.ly/35Ka3Bk. The State of Michigan has also compiled a Support Staff Eligibility FAQ which can be found at https://bit.ly/35X08bK.
  3. The school support staff certifies to the District, via Form 5734, that he or she worked additional time spent outside of normal working hours, experienced hazardous conditions, or incurred additional costs related to providing student services during the COVID19 pandemic. This form will be reviewed by the district for eligibility. 
    If the support staff was employed in a part-time capacity, the hazard pay will be prorated to meet their portion fulfilled.
