How can schools and districts equitably deploy the funds coming to Washington state educational systems through the Biden Administration's American Rescue Plan?

Join Dr. Anthony Craig, Professor of Practice and Director of the Leadership for Learning (L4L) Program at the UW College of Education, for an important dialogue with community partners and subject matter experts about the American Rescue Plan's impact on public education.

As Washington begins receiving its portion of the $170 billion in relief funds designed to support the overwhelming costs that educational institutions and students have absorbed in coping with the COVID-19 pandemic, how can decision makers ensure that these funds are used to expand educational justice? In this webinar we will explore the complexities of building more just and equitable education systems, as well as how funds from the American Rescue Plan will play a critical role in shaping the future of education in Washington and beyond.

Principals, district leaders, community leaders, and other decision makers in education will benefit from this discussion into the complexities and nuances of the Biden Administration's one-time disbursement of funds.
