Using Federal Funds to Address Literacy Learning Loss
A brief message from Dr. Susan Hall about COVID Learning Loss, the Webinar, and the Resources on the next page:
The second COVID stimulus package provides an opportunity to mitigate learning loss from school closures:
- $54 billion is allocated to K-12 schools– that's 4X the amount of the last one
- 2 of the 15 uses specifically address learning loss
We’re hearing from educators:
- Concern over whether K-3 students have been able to learn effectively in a remote learning environment
- Many educators used funds from the first stimulus for technology. Now, this second one presents an unexpected opportunity to address learning loss and fund summer school and after-school programs.
As you know, 95 Percent Group has been concerned about Learning Loss from COVID-19 closures since spring 2020, and we're encouraged to see it included in this legislation.
Please join us for a ½ hour webinar with Dr. Susan Hall to discuss recommendations for applying these new funds to mitigating learning loss from COVID closures.
- Hear an overview of this new COVID funding and how it differs from the CARES Act funding of 2020
- Learn how to diagnose deficits the moment students return to campus
- Consider tips to optimize the remaining months of this academic year
- Review models for effective summer schools that address literacy learning loss
Also, we're curating a library of resources you may find helpful, including a downloadable copy of the relevant excerpt of the legislation showing how learning loss is highlighted.
