Project Overview

In partnership with ISBE, our two-year study seeks to understand the strategies that schools and districts are implementing to support learning renewal in students across Illinois. Specifically, using a combination of test score data, district survey responses and public data on ESSER spending, we will identify and highlight schools and districts with higher bounce-back learning rates (i.e., schools and districts whose post-COVID growth has been outstanding) and their use of resources to achieve such learning renewal rates.
