  • Texas School Districts Raise Hands For Shares Of $1.29 Billion Federal Infusion
    • Most of the money is expected to go directly to local districts to help vulnerable students during the coronavirus pandemic. But advocates are trying to steer some into controversial policies like expanding virtual schools.
  • Colorado Education Association wants to protect education from budget cuts with taxes
    • The largest teachers union in the state of Colorado is proposing an emergency tax relief bill to raise revenue as the state faces a $3 billion budget gap due to the coronavirus pandemic.
    • Along with a tax relief bill, the Colorado Education Association (CEA) proposes cuts to other departments and a pause on accountability systems, like standardized testing.
  • (Ohio) Community learning centers will help school districts cope with COVID-19 disruption
    • Through school-based health centers and tele-health services, online early childhood instruction, food pantries filled with donations from community and business partnerships, free Wi-Fi hot spots, legal aid, and more, the Community Learning Center model has given Cleveland Public Schools students and families the resources they need.
    • A starting point for expanding community learning centers would be to provide funding for a community engagement process in every district, and resource coordinators at every school, who would build and maintain partnerships with local businesses and nonprofits.
