The federal government has provided three relief packages to aid K-12 education during the coronavirus pandemic. The Hunt Institute is tracking how states have been allocating these relief dollars to support K-12 schools and students. In completing this exercise, The Institute has discovered clear trends in spending across states.
We have taken a deep dive into some of the categorical uses of spending. These analyses, available below, offer an overview of which states have allocated money for a particular use, which funds they used, and a brief description of activities. The Institute created these briefs to help education leaders better understand states’ priories in education policy as it relates to the pandemic and recovery.
More briefs will be added as plans are published and allocations are analyzed.
