K-12 education is at a critical crossroads today. New conversations are just starting about how to embrace the silver linings of the past year to transform schools and systems to better meet the needs of all learners. The pandemic state and federal funding, including the recent American Rescue Plan (ARP), provides a unique opportunity to invest in new approaches, learning models, and practices that will support greater equity and community engagement in education. But is there a roadmap to help districts with this process? How should districts develop new visions and strategic plans to effectively leverage these once-in-a-lifetime funds to not only meet today’s needs, but plan for a better future?

In this edWebinar, Dr. Julie A. Evans, CEO of Project Tomorrow, shares new research and recommendations about how district leaders can leverage the lessons learned from the past year to make better investment decisions and create sustainable transformation in your district. Education leaders join Dr. Evans to discuss how they are using community feedback specifically to inform their new forward-looking plans and decisions. With these collective insights, districts can create a highly effective roadmap for making the best decisions with their ARP funding, and industry partners can align their services to support these goals.

This recorded edWebinar is part of our edFocus series exploring the impact of COVID-19 on the future of education. The program will be of interest to district leaders and industry executives in K-12 education.
