Upcoming Webinar on Federal Supports to Address School Labor Shortages
The U.S. Departments of Education and Treasury are hosting a two-part webinar series that may be of interest to school nutrition professionals and other School Food Authority (SFA) staff.
The two-part webinar series – “Using American Rescue Plan Funds and Other Federal Supports to Address State and Local Teacher and School Staff Labor Shortages” – will be held on Wednesday, October 27th and Thursday, October 28th from 4:00 to 5:00 PM Eastern Time. The October 27th webinar will focus on teacher and substitute teacher shortages. The October 28th webinar will focus on staff shortages, such as school bus drivers and school nutrition professionals/food service workers.
Schools and SFAs across the nation are facing challenges to filling these critical positions in schools. The purpose of these webinars is to discuss the underlying causes of these shortages and share effective practices happening at the state and local levels and how federal resources, including those under the American Rescue Plan’s Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ARP ESSER) and the State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF), can be used to support and sustain these efforts.
