Evanston’s two public school districts are scheduled to get nearly $1.1 million in funding from the federal government to spend on its coronavirus response.

State School Superintendent Carmen Ayala, in a message to districts across the state this week on how an expected $569.6 million in funding to the state will be allocated, said districts are “strongly” encouraged to use the money to strengthen infrastructure for remote learning.

The money is part of the $2 trillion federal stimulus bill adopted March 24 in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
