How will you continue your best investments when ESSER funds are depleted?

Explore the Funding Your Plan: Best Practices to Sustain Investments guidance document below. 

This resource is designed to help financial decision-making teams identify solutions to disappearing federal funds. This issue is top of mind for many state, district, and school leaders as we all consider the upcoming “fiscal cliff” that will affect service delivery to students once historic levels of federal COVID relief funds are spent in the years to come.  When U.S. Department of Education funds are used to their full potential, states and districts can better support sustainable efforts that are evidence-based and focused on student outcomes. North Dakota hopes this resource, which includes concrete action steps school leaders can take to align funding with state policy priorities and promote sustainability, will be used for years to come.
