How you can fund attendance and enrollment in your district.

The already significant disparities in educational opportunity have been exacerbated by the pandemic, leaving K–12 districts nationwide prioritizing engagement and attendance for their most vulnerable students and families. The unprecedented flexibility allocating federal relief spending will enable districts to address these crucial needs.

Making investments for permanent improvement

More flexible funding means more control over meeting your students' unique needs.

The allowable use of these funds is broader than previous legislation, enabling local districts to directly address the needs of their students, teachers, and communities.

Most “supplement not supplant” provisions found in ESSA Title I are waived for these allocations. Districts can and should invest in ensuring students are present and accounted for this summer and beyond.
