Schools, districts and communities are facing myriad challenges as we emerge into a post-pandemic world. The massive influx of federal stimulus dollars adds enormous potential and further complexity. This webinar will help to build understanding of the magnitude of the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funding and its potential for short- and long-term impact, sustainable financial planning, resource equity, community partnership and more.
Aleesia Johnson, superintendent of Indianapolis Public Schools, will share a district leader’s perspective on what young people, schools and districts need right now. Anu Malipatil, vice president, education at the Overdeck Family Foundation and Karen Hawley Miles, president and CEO of Education Resource Strategies, Inc. will help identify roles for philanthropy to play in supporting a strong and sustained recovery for schools within the communities they serve whether urban, suburban or rural. Grantmakers for Education Executive Director Celine Coggins will guide the discussion on the current challenges and exciting opportunities this moment provides and the potential for profound impact on young people, communities and a wide range of stakeholders now and into the future.
This event is intended for members and other education grantmakers. There is no cost to attend this Grantmakers for Education program.
