The U.S. Department of Education released a back-to-school checklist for parents and families. The checklist, part of the Department’s updated back-to-school resource site, will help parents, caregivers, and families engage with local school and district leaders about how they are supporting students as they recover from the impacts of the pandemic. This checklist elevates key evidence-based practices for supporting students’ learning and mental health and ensuring the safety of students and staff, which districts are encouraged to implement using the American Rescue Plan and other COVID relief funds. This back-to-school ARP checklist also recognizes 15 promising examples of how states and school districts are already using federal ARP funds to support students and staff schools.
