Post ESSER Budget Challenges

This week, we were joined by Dr. Marlaina Palmeri and Ryan Eldridge to discuss post-ESSER budget challenges.

Here are this session’stop 3 tips:
  1. Plan strategically, act swiftly. Especially when it comes to securing funding and managing budget constraints.
  2. Consider adopting zero-based budgeting practices. This approach involves reevaluating expenses from scratch and prioritizing evidence-based programs and positions that align with the school’s mission and goals.
  3. Diversify funding sources. Engage with local community boards, nonprofit organizations, and corporate partners.
