Elkhart Community Schools plans on spending a second round of CARES Act funding on improving classroom environment at its buildings.

ELKHART — A second round of coronavirus-related federal funding has been earmarked for area schools, with all receiving a significant amount more than what was allocated last spring, the Indiana Department of Education announced.

More than $881 million will be available for public and private schools throughout the state to help pay for the ongoing fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the latest round of emergency federal funding, known as CARES 2.0.
