BES is a national nonprofit that identifies and prepares excellent leaders to transform education in their communities. We are a leadership development organization that supports leaders to not only build new schools, but to ensure their schools excel and sustain their results over time.
We invest in leaders so that they can invest in their teams and students, delivering on the promise of an excellent education for every child.
In many states, BES’s leadership development programs and services are an allowable use of federal COVID-19 relief program funding. This means districts and charter schools can use funds from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021, the education portion of which is known as the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund, to partner with BES for school leadership development. The purpose of ESSER funding is to support schools to reopen safely, sustain safe operations, and meet students’ academic, social, emotional, and mental health needs in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about how your school or district might leverage this funding.
