Toolkit: Advancing Equitable School Funding under ESSA

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) gives states new financial transparency tools to better understand and become leaders for resource equity, but only if they are used well. These resources will help state leaders understand the opportunity and challenges they will face as they implement these new rules. Contact us with any questions.
