The COVID-19 crisis has had an enormous impact operationally, educationally, and economically on P-12 school districts, charter schools, and institutions of higher education, as well as students, parents, and families. To address the learning challenges related to the economic, social, and health impacts of COVID-19 and promote innovation, Colorado is awarding $32.7 million in grants to educational institutions using federal Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Funds. The Colorado Lab is supporting several awardees in moving their programs along the steps to building evidence to ensure that these new and innovative approaches grow to be effective in improving student and family outcomes. Additionally, the Lab is working to ensure that lessons learned from these efforts are documented and communicated to other schools who might benefit from similar approaches.
