We recently introduced four new tools developed in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Education to track and strengthen the effectiveness of (American Rescue Plan) ARP investments.

A key takeaway of the presentation and practitioners’ panel is that even as state education agencies (SEAs) and local education agencies (LEAs) are trying to spend the money by the deadline, they need to focus on the quality and effectiveness of the interventions they choose and the investments they are making. Paying special attention to good planning, successful implementation, and achievement of outcomes is key. These new tools can be customized to your SEA and LEA contexts:

Members of our Community of Practice: Using ARP Resources to Accelerate Learning, will continue testing these tools over the next year to support the 20 percent set-aside for learning recovery included in the ARP. A fifth tool, the School Spending & Outcomes Snapshot will be introduced via webinar on October 18—register today to learn more!
