Pandemic-related learning gaps are still causing issues in K12 education as students try to make up for lost time due to the pandemic and school closures. These gaps are even more significant for Multilingual Learner students.
Congress has passed three bills that provide $190 billion for K-12 education called Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding, explicitly meant to help education recover from the pandemic.
In an on-demand webinar, TransACT Parent Notice’s Executive Director for Federal Programs and State Relationships, Dr. David Holbrook, outlines ways school districts can access these federal grants to support dual-language programs.
TransACT and the Academic Learning Company collaborated to host and sponsor a webinar in January 2022 which highlights:
- How these funds differ from other federal education funding
- How State Education Agencies and Local Education Agencies access the funding
- What are the required and allowable uses of these funds
- Specific programs and activities allowable for using ESSER funds
