The Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) is a nonpartisan, nationwide, nonprofit organization of public officials who head departments of elementary and secondary education in the states, the District of Columbia, the Department of Defense Education Activity, the Bureau of Indian Education, and five U.S. extra-state jurisdictions. CCSSO provides leadership, advocacy, and technical assistance on major educational issues. CCSSO seeks member consensus on major educational issues and expresses their views to civic and professional organizations, federal agencies, Congress, and the public.
The Program Director of CCSSO’s COVID Relief Data Project will oversee a new grant-funded project on how state education agencies are using federal COVID-19 emergency relief funds to better support students, educators, and school systems. Through this project, the Program Director will create processes and protocols for identifying how SEAs are using COVID relief state set-aside funds and find ways to elevate best practices and share positive examples with CCSSO members as well as broader audiences.
