Thank you to those of you who joined us for the April Superintendent Call yesterday afternoon. We discussed the documents put out by the Department of Education last month to Governors on increasing educational productivity and flexibility in federal dollars. I hope the call was helpful to you.
I also encourage you to email me about potential topics that you'd like us to cover in future calls -- we want to make them as helpful and productive to you as possible. Email me at AskDrT@ed.gov and sign up to be on the Superintendent mailing list to receive invites to our Superintendent calls!
Last week, the Department released to governors a set of documents that share promising practices about how to spend education dollars productively and highlight flexibility available for spending federal funds. I know many state and district leaders are in the process of cutting budgets and making difficult decisions, and I hope that these documents are helpful in that process.
We’re planning a more comprehensive discussion around this topic during our next Superintendent call in April. More information will be shared soon, but in the meantime, I would love to hear from you if you have thoughts to share on how your district or state is using its education dollars more productively or creatively. Email me at AskDrT@ed.gov.
