The SEA’s Burden: GEER, ESSER, MEQ, Reporting, Approvals and Oversight

February 10, 2022

1:00 pm – 2:30 pm EST


Course Description:

With huge new amounts of federal funding flowing to States and school districts under the Elementary and Secondary School Education Relief Fund (ESSER) and the Governor’s Education Emergency Relief Fund (GEER), States faced an enormous administrative burden.  Though much of those funds are out the door to districts, the work of States is not over!  This training will focus on reporting and oversight under the various stimulus bills, including fiscal requirements like Maintenance of Effort and Maintenance of Equity, how States should treat spending approvals, and what oversight to expect from the U.S. Department of Education and members of Congress.
