The Advocate September 2023: School District Spending of the American Rescue Plan Report
From the blog: "In August, we published the School District Spending of American Rescue Plan which details and analyzes the survey responses detailing how school systems across the country are utilizing ARP funds in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This report detailed the consistency with which districts have prioritized adding instructional time and addressing whole-child needs as well as how superintendents are approaching the fiscal cliff in September 2024. We also hoped to demonstrate that ARP spending plans are not documents written in stone and district leaders are changing their spending decisions based on a variety of factors. Finally, we wanted to ascertain how districts are preparing for the spending cuts that will come in September 2024 and how they view the sustainability of this funding."
