Zhou, Tiffany; Molfino, Tomas; Travers, Jonathan – Education Resource Strategies, 2021
The full financial impact of COVID-19 is now unfolding for school districts, and it is a story of much more than PPE, hand sanitizer, and laptops.

Childrens' learning has been massively disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing the need for more opportunities for differentiated, high-quality learning, stronger relationships with the adults in their school, and streamlined access to social-emotional support -- especially for the country's lowest-income students, Black and Latinx students,…

Districts across the country are planning how to invest huge influxes of one-time ESSER funds -- targeting funds toward meeting urgent academic and social-emotional recovery needs, as well as redesigning better, more equitable approaches to teaching and learning.

In most K-12 school districts across the country, the beginning of the 2021-22 school year has been different from what school and district leaders expected and were planning for. Many spent the spring and summer sowing the seeds of their ESSER plans, allocating federal investments to high-impact strategies designed to bear fruit for years to…

Chang, Betty; Girma, Abel; Hopkins, Ben; McQueen, Daven; Katz, Jenny – Education Resource Strategies, 2020
We all want our schools to be safe, inviting and positive places for all students. Unfortunately, that isn't always the case. We are grappling with a history of systemic racism and police brutality against Black Americans in our country--a national reckoning that is playing out in our schools, too. As the research base grows on the negative…

In the wake of COVID-19, school systems face a daunting set of challenges as they plan for the 2020-2021 school year -- including meeting students' increased academic and social-emotional needs, implementing physical distancing requirements, and grappling with significant revenue loss.

Rosenberg, David; Trawick-Smith, Joseph; Miles, Karen Hawley – Education Resource Strategies, 2020
The 2019 Student Opportunity Act creates a once-in-a-generation moment for Massachusetts students: the Commonwealth has committed $1.5 billion dollars over seven years to make good on the promise that best-in-the-nation education can be a reality for all Massachusetts children, especially English learners and students from low-income families. But…

McKown, Joe; Schick, Laura; Miles, Karen Hawley – Education Resource Strategies, 2020
In turnaround schools, traditional approaches to school improvement (and some say, even the recent seven billion dollar federal investment in school improvement) aren't enough -- but why? Schools that successfully achieve turnaround "do school" differently to break cycles of underperformance and maximize learning for all students, and…

Because returning to in-person instruction too soon and without comprehensive health and safety measures will lead to dire risks and consequences, many districts are choosing to start off the 2020-21 school year fully remote. However, districts can still leverage this period of fully-remote time as an opportunity to proactively address the…
