Education Resource Strategies is a nonprofit dedicated to transforming how urban school systems organize resources like people, time, technology, and money. The organization will describe the concept of a weighted-student state education funding formula that includes additional funds for schools with high concentrations of at-risk students, flexibility for districts, and accountability for equity; the organization also will communicate the importance of this funding formula. Resource equity and flexibility help local school systems advance the practice and assessment innovations that promote deeper learning student outcomes at greater scale.

They start with an analysis of existing strategy and resource allocation in school systems mapped against best practice. ERS then helps their partners reallocate resources to support high-leverage improvement strategies. This grant is to establish ERS’ Sustainable Transformation Fund, to provide technical assistance for recovery and district transformation during COVID-19.
