Districts have only this school year to spend down ESSER and ensure any remaining funds deliver value for students, while also planning for operating without this money (aka preparing for the “fiscal cliff”). How leaders navigate these financial decisions will have consequences that will ripple through K-12 education for decades.
This webinar focuses on the pending fiscal cliff in four New England states. We’ll share our analysis of school districts in CT, MA, NH, and RI, and show how districts and state education agencies can explore local student performance alongside remaining ESSER funds, enrollment and staffing trends, and the state financial outlook – all critical factors in preparing to protect what matters most for students and ensuring district financial health post-ESSER.
