U.S. Dept of Education Literacy and Math Series Begins

The U.S. Department of Education will host five sessions focused on strategies and programs to boost student literacy and math outcomes.

These five sessions will highlight strategies and best practices to help states, districts, and schools improve learning outcomes for students especially in literacy and mathematics. The series seeks to build engagement from the field; identify collaboration opportunities among research, practice, and funding; and lift best practices and resources for practitioners and policymakers to take action to address learning loss and academic recovery.

The sessions will occur monthly from October through February and will center on sustained, cohesive efforts to improve educational practice. The kickoff event on Oct. 26, hosted at the U.S. Department of Education, is a continued call to action to practitioners, education leaders, teachers, parents, students, and policymakers to continue to leverage the extraordinary level of available federal resources to mitigate learning loss and accelerate academic recovery.

Additionally, in the coming days, the Department will issue a guide to drive strategies in districts and states on how to best address learning loss and academic recovery.

The schedule of sessions is as follows:
