RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Gov. Northam announced $62.7 million will go to funding to help school districts with pandemic-related learning loss.

Half of the grants will address unfinished learning due to school closures.

The other half will be awarded to school divisions to cover costs associated with implementing year-round or extended-year calendars.

The deadline for school districts to apply is May 28.
