ARP Briefing - Update on spending deadlines chart for CARES Act funding, April 2, 2021

We wanted to clarify some of the information provided on our “Spending Deadlines” slide from our American Rescue Plan Education Briefing last week. The May 2021 deadline referenced under “ESSER Fund (CARES Act)” actually applies to the portion of Learning Loss Mitigation funds provided to LEAs out of the Coronavirus Relief Fund, not to ESSER I funding. The deadline for an LEA to obligate its ESSER I funding is still September 30, 2022. -Kevin Kevin Gordon, President Capitol Advisors Group, LLC

I am honoured to join the IB community to further develop the mission of creating a better world through education. It is clear that we are suffering from a global learning and teaching crisis, and COVID-19 has magnified these challenges. I am looking forward to working together with schools and educators to develop solutions to address these challenges and find ways to develop a strong future for our students,”
