The Solano County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday agreed to spend $1.87 million in federal pandemic relief funds toward a new Early Learning Center at the site of the former Beverly Hills Elementary School in Vallejo.
The board also approved $533,000 in American Rescue Plan Act funding toward programs to reconnect with students who did not graduate during the pandemic and are not engaged in any kind of school or work programs. It is a three-year program.
The actions were taken during a presentation by the Children/Education working group, one of 10 groups addressing various priorities eligible for the federal funding.
