One-Time Funding Resources for LEAs
CCSESA convened a One-Time Funding Workgroup to develop tools and resources to assist in the planning and effective use of one-time funding to Local Education Agencies (LEAs). These tools support an effective use of funds for initiatives and efforts that meet the short and long-term needs of students, build LEA capacity, and strengthen systems for equity. They encourage LEAs to build on and strengthen existing initiatives, especially those goals and actions identified in the Local Control Accountability Plan, expand learning opportunities, and leverage resources available through the California System of Support.
Learn more about the “why” behind this project in a statement from CCSESA President L. K. Monroe.
