EANS Reference Points as of February 26, 2021
Front-loading more than EANS: thoughts outside the usual
What purchases will enhance the quality of your mission, and your ministry? How will these perpetuate the quest to (yes the same quest for nearly a year now):
Safeguard the health and safety of students and teachers
Address state standards
Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Shelter time for teachers
How you apply EANS funding is a marketing opportunity.
Send a thank you letter to Governor Holcomb! Nonpublic Schools in Michigan received $300 per student… Indiana $800 +
The Southern Indiana Education Center, your pipeline to EANS, will be ready to accept your requests in mid-March, when they open the final version of the application (see link for SAMPLE below). To encumber the funds from the grant, you will have until the fall of 2021, giving you a much larger window of opportunity than the April projection shared a few weeks ago.

The EANS link is not yet finalized. You do have a SAMPLE on the District website, which will not appreciably change in its final version to complete. [aaron, put the sample under COVID webpage, and link here,too}
Webinars from INPEA
- About Third Party Providers, even if you choose different vendors than FACTS, Catapult, or Crossroads, this information is helpful background. I have connected with TEC21 and Lutheran Special Education Ministries about registering as Indiana TPPs.
- About Learning Loss, from Renaissance Learning. Do you have answers for parents about what it will take to address learning loss reported in the media? This will help, in particular this chart, where Math is green and Reading, blue. The Renaissance report is based on performance data, while the more alarming and more publicized Stanford CREDO report is a projection of data trends.
Bridging from the Renaissance chart above, and frankly sailing in a completely different direction than SAIL in August (where the District envisioned a plan for home-centered instruction online), Summer SAIL welcomes students into your school with much of the same contemporary instructional designing to maximize learning and address gaps. SAIL is something you have no time to construct, so the District will compose the plan, design units of instruction, and outline EANS costs for you to consider for your kids, and for the rest of the kids in your community who most likely will have no opportunity in the public schools to overcome COVID slide—wins all around, including a marketing opportunity for you. More info quickly forthcoming….
