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.
