Navigating the ESSER Funding Cliff: A Toolkit for Evidence-Based Financial Decisions

From the blog: "To help district and school leaders navigate the financial uncertainties following the end of ESSER funding, the OLR team created a Funding Cliff Toolkit as a starting point for data-driven decision-making based on unique local contexts. The toolkit provides a comprehensive set of resources, including a Return on Investment Framework and Calculator that uses detailed data on ESSER expenditures as well as the impacts on student outcomes of various investments. By using this toolkit, schools and districts can assess what worked during the ESSER funding period, identify areas for improvement, and create sustainable financial plans that ensure effective programs continue regardless of funding."
