AASA Releases Fourth Installment of the Learning Recovery and Redesign Guidance: Using ARP to Support Homeless Students

This week, AASA has released the fourth installment of the AASA Learning Recovery & Redesign tools.

This actionable checklist, developed in partnership with SchoolHouse Connection, is designed to help district leaders take full advantage of new and existing federal resources to meet the significant needs—greatly exacerbated by the pandemic—of students experiencing homelessness and housing instability.

The resource includes:
  • Ideas for better collaborating with your district’s homeless education liaison
  • Tips for assessing current strategies in supporting this student population
  • Planning tools to help you meet the specific needs of your students experiencing homelessness
As more states are set to distribute to school districts new federal funds targeted at supporting students experiencing homelessness (specifically, ARP-HCY part II funds), it is imperative that schools accept them. This checklist will help them make effective use of these additional dollars.

The checklist is available here. If you have already declined your district’s share of ARP-HCY funds for whatever reason, the checklist items mostly apply to other resources you can still use to support these students!

The full list of tools is available here.
