ESSER fueled a hiring bonanza that came on top of several earlier years of staffing growth. The result is that districts now have more staff than at any time in history. Meanwhile, over the same period, most districts have been losing students. With the end of ESSER looming, and tighter state budgets, districts know they can’t afford their expanded labor force. Is now the time to rethink the age-old strategy that the best way to serve students is to add more staff?

In this webinar we share trends we’re seeing in states and districts and discuss options for school systems to address the challenges ahead.
