Leveraging Federal Stimulus Funds for Equity-Focused Recovery and Redesign
How district leaders can use stimulus funds to center equity, accelerate student learning and create a sustainable foundation for long-term improvement
May 27, 2021
With three rounds of federal education relief funding well underway, districts across the country are busy planning how to use these funds to support recovery and redesign. Taking an equity-centered approach to investing these ESSER funds in recovery and redesign is critical to address the widening opportunity gaps that students face.
In this webinar, ERS' Karen Hawley Miles shares how district leaders can use ESSER funds to meet the moment and use our "power strategies" for equity-focused recovery and redesign. Rather than spending this federal aid to put money into the same old systems, we must use a "do now, build toward" approach for strategic and sustainable change that creates the conditions for transformative improvement in K-12 education.
