In addition, each attendee will receive a copy of our Administrator’s Handbook on EDGAR (5th Edition), which includes the most recent OMB updates.


We will also discuss allowability of funds under the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Funds (ESSER), equitable services requirements under ESSER and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) and discuss expected ESSER monitoring and audit protocols.
