Wild Ride Ahead: A Workshop on District Finances Post ESSER

A close read of district financial statements from across the country warns of financial havoc for the next three years. Never before have leaders faced such competing priorities: spend down relief dollars in ways that bring value for students, while also bracing for budget gaps unlike any in history.

Decisions made now come with big consequences for downstream financial solvency, teacher and staff layoffs, school closures, and ultimately for students.

In this workshop, participants will consider how to:

develop and weigh different options for budget cuts
invest in a way that is financially sustainable and transparent
enhance equity in the short and long term
build trust by engaging communities in financial choices

4 Virtual Sessions
12:00 – 2:00 p.m. ET
September 28, September 29, October 5 and October 6


Funding supports or group rates may be available for qualified individuals.

Participants may earn up to 12 CPEs and up to 10 PDCs.
