The federal COVID-19 relief packages provide needed resources to Georgia’s public school districts, enabling them to substantially mitigate transmission risk of the virus and address student needs that have emerged in this year of disruption and uncertainty. These funds also create an opportunity to take steps to reimagine areas of K-12 education and better serve students beyond the immediate challenges created by the pandemic. The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education is undertaking a multi-year, multi-strand research project to capture districts’ use of these funds. It will generate knowledge to support effective practice and policy at the school, district, and state levels that can be applied as districts’ work unfolds and to future initiatives. With a public dissemination and robust stakeholder engagement component, the project also aims to cultivate shared learning about and public support for public education in Georgia.
