With billions in federal Covid-relief aid flowing to K-12 schools, what do we know about how school districts and charter organizations plan to spend it? What challenges are local educators facing as they decide how to use this unprecedented infusion of federal aid? In a March 15 webinar, FutureEd and Burbio explored what we’ve learned about local spending plans and what’s next for reporting expenditures and measuring impact. Moderated by FutureEd Director Thomas Toch, the webinar discussion included: Curtis Jones, superintendent, Bibb County School District; Phyllis W. Jordan, associate director of FutureEd; Julie Roche, co-founder of Burbio; and Nick Simmons, senior advisor to the secretary, U.S. Department of Education.
