In the last year, states and districts have received unprecedented funding from the federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund. The funds, intended to help states, districts, and schools, recover and move forward from the pandemic offer enormous opportunities as well as questions. What’s the best use for this funding? How do districts address immediate needs while also investing in the future? Can districts spend the money in a timely way? How can districts document the impact that these dollars will have? Join us for this webinar to hear from district leaders about how they are using their ESSER funding and how they will share the impact of these dollars in years to come.
