Waterford.org, leading provider of early childhood and early elementary math and literacy solutions, has launched its “Guide to the CRRSA Act ESSER II Funding: Claiming Your Cut of 54B to Counteract the COVID Cliff” to support district leaders facing academic and budgetary related challenges.
“Schools and districts around the country are dealing not only with learning loss but also with funding challenges,” said Benjamin Heuston, PhD, the CEO of Waterford.org. “With this webinar and guide, we’re providing educators and leaders with insight and support to help them recover from this challenging year and prepare their students for a brighter future.”
A February 18 webinar, “Transforming Your Approach to Address Learning Loss,” featured Dr. Kandace Bethea, superintendent of Marion County Schools (SC), and Charles Dinofrio, president of Lehigh Valley Children’s Centers, who discussed the possible impacts of learning loss and ways educators can make a difference. In that webinar (and contained within the guide itself) are answers to the following questions:
- What is ESSER II?
- How much is available to my state, district, or territory?
- What can the funds be used for?
- When can the funds be used?
- How do local districts apply for funding?
- A complete state-by-state breakdown of funding under the CRRSA Act.
