Communities and the American Rescue Plan Act
Planning and Investing in Children's Recovery From the Pandemic
Wednesday, May 12, 2021, 1:00 pm ET - 02:00 pm ET

Join the conversation on Twitter using #QualityEdChat.
The passage of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) has provided school districts with essential funds to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. With this influx of funds, it’s necessary to ensure thoughtful planning to effectively invest these new resources. High-poverty districts, in particular, will have significant resources to help students recover academically, socially, and emotionally from the pandemic.
Please join the Center for American Progress and experts from across the education field to discuss the need for creativity, collaboration with communities, and thoughtful planning as school systems prepare to spend ARPA funding during the three or more years it will be available. The event will also highlight ideas from CAP’s proposal for an Opportunity and Counseling Corps to address academic, social, and emotional effects of the pandemic through evidence-based efforts such as tutoring and counseling.
We would love to hear your questions. Please submit any questions for our distinguished panel via email at CAPeventquestions@americanprogress.org or on Twitter using #QualityEdChat. Live captioning will be available on Zoom and on the YouTube livestream.
