Bloomington, Ill. – Aug. 11, 2020 – Educators need financial resources to implement school plans that are much more complicated than in years past. But state and local governments are experiencing drops in revenue as a result of COVID-19, and so are unlikely to provide extra funding. So, how can districts make the most of the funding they have and find more when they need it?

On Thursday, August 20, industry experts Dr. Kecia Ray and Susan Gentz will bring together a panel of K-12 education leaders to discuss maximizing district budgets. This edLeader Panel will also dive into strategies for leveraging federal funds to integrate technology, including collaboration tools like Google Hangouts and Microsoft Teams, to support distance learning, hybrid models, and in-school learning.

There is no cost to join the webinar, but registration is required.
