Using Federal Funds for Summer Learning and Afterschool: A New Guide for Providers, School Districts, and Intermediaries
July 20 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
This webinar is intended for all OST stakeholders – program leaders, school district leadership, state officials, and local government leaders.
High-quality summer and afterschool learning programs (“out-of-school time” or OST programs) play an important role in the lives of our nation’s young people. In the wake of the pandemic, educators are placing greater emphasis on them as a means for learning recovery and to promote well-being, aided by new federal funding through the American Rescue Plan Act.
At the same time, district leaders and out-of-school time providers have lacked a comprehensive guide about which of the several federal funding streams can be used to support summer and afterschool – not only to fund direct program costs, but also for planning and the infrastructure needed to deliver high-quality programs over the longer term.
To meet this need, The Wallace Foundation will hold a webinar to share a new, free resource developed by EducationCounsel: Using Federal Funds for Summer Learning and Afterschool: A New Guide for Providers, School Districts, and Intermediaries.
The webinar will feature:
- Shital Shah, Senior Advisor for Strategic Partnerships at the U.S. Department of Education;
- Sean Worley, author of the new resource and Policy Advisor at EducationCounsel;
- Barbara Couto Sipe, President and CEO of NextUp RVA;
- and perspectives from district and city leaders on funding summer learning and afterschool.
