Other Funds allocated pursuant to EC 43521(b) may be spent for allowable purposes specified in 43522(b) including extended learning time, accelerating progress to close learning gaps and integrated pupil supports. Funds allocated pursuant to EC 43521(c) may be used for any purpose consistent with providing in-person instruction pursuant to EC 43522(f).
