ESSA, ESSER, Title IV—what does it all mean? This session will unwind these acronyms and help you access federal funding opportunities for your program. Don’t leave money on the table—funds are available for the vast majority of public and charter school programs. Join ASTA String Industry Council members, Heather Mansell, Yamaha Corporation, and John Mlynczak, Hal Leonard Corporation, to learn how you and your music merchant partners can help string educators access the enormous investment of federal funds in K-12 public education as we emerge from the pandemic. Heather and John will share success stories from schools across the country. These funds are available over the next several years: how will you help your local school string programs take advantage of this opportunity?
