Considerations for the Governors Emergency Education Relief Fund Application and Report

This document is intended to help governors’ offices complete their applications for the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund as well as provide insights that can aid in establishing an approach for the development of the more detailed report required by the U.S. Department of Education that is due 45 days after the GEER Funds are awarded.

In developing this memo, American Institutes for Research (AIR) staff experts were consulted. Staff included those with expertise in educational technology and remote learning; those who work with state and local education systems; and those who provide direct support to help states and districts respond to academic priorities as well as support for the well-being of students, families, and staff.
