Presented by Julia Martin, Esq.

In this virtual training, we’ll cover the new provisions in the late-December “Coronabus” legislation which funds the government for the remainder of the fiscal year and provides additional stimulus money to education. Attendees will learn what’s new in this bill in higher education and K-12 funding, key differences in use of funds from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and how private schools are treated for purposes of equitable services. We’ll also discuss the impact of additional provisions including FAFSA changes, expansion of Pell eligibility, and more. Finally, attendees will learn best estimates for how soon this funding might get out – and what answers we are waiting on from the U.S. Department of Education (ED).

This session will cover the upcoming transition to the Biden Administration and expected shifts in education policy. In addition, we will cover Congressional updates relevant to education stakeholders, including fiscal year 2021 funding, a potential stimulus bill, and the impact of the Georgia special election on the makeup of the 117th Congress.

Presented by Julia Martin, Esq.

This virtual training will discuss the many ways student population data comes into play in federal education policy, including in funding allocations. We will discuss the various sources of data including the decennial Census, American Community Survey, SAIPE, FRL counts, and student attendance, how they factor into decision-making on the federal level, and why. The webinar will also discuss recent issues and controversies with these data sources, including disputes about the Census, the Public Charge Rule, and SNAP work requirements. Finally, the discussion will turn to how these issues have been shaped by the COVID-19 pandemic and the new questions that administrators at every level will face, including resources on how to account for missing free and reduced-price lunch data when schools are operating under waivers.
