Planning now is the best way to give districts an opportunity to prepare for when it’s finally time to head back to school.

Connecticut's education recovery strategy should prioritize: (a) meeting the needs of vulnerable student populations that will be disproportionately impacted by this crisis; and (b) establishing appropriate guidelines for use of recovery funds so that they aren’t used to supplant pre-crisis budget deficits. With that premise in mind, we recommend four goals for an education recovery plan.
