The School Employee COVID-19 Emergency Leave program has
been amended from its original announcement in Commissioner’s Memo #
COM-21-014. Due to the short-term
expiration date of these funds, the Arkansas Department of Education – Division
of Elementary and Secondary Education (ADE-DESE) is changing the deadline for
claim submissions to December 18, 2020.
All claims must be submitted to the Emergency Leave email address (firstname.lastname@example.org)
by close of business on December 18, 2020.
No claims submitted after this will be paid.
Districts are encouraged to submit claims as early as
possible and as frequently as necessary to ensure timely processing.
The claim form and required statement of assurance are
attached to this memo for your convenience.
