Two-part webinar series: “Using American Rescue Plan Funds and Other Federal Supports to Address State and Local Teacher and School Staff Labor Shortages"

Dear Colleague,


The U.S. Departments of Education and Treasury invite you to an upcoming two-part webinar series – “Using American Rescue Plan Funds and Other Federal Supports to Address State and Local Teacher and School Staff Labor Shortages” – on Wednesday, October 27th and Thursday, October 28th from 4:00 to 5:00 PM Eastern Time. The October 27th webinar will focus on teacher and substitute teacher shortages.  The October 28th webinar will focus on staff shortages, such as school bus drivers and food service workers.


We know that in schools and districts across the nation, there are challenges to filling these critical positions. The purpose of these webinars is to discuss the underlying causes of these shortages and share effective practices happening at the state and local levels and how federal resources, including those under the American Rescue Plan’s Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ARP ESSER) and the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF), can be used to support and sustain these efforts.


Registration links are provided below.
