The House of Representatives moves forward with its appropriations bills for Fiscal Year 2023, including huge boosts for critical programs like Title I, Title III, and Pell Grants and funding for a new Career-Connected High Schools initiative to better align high school, college, and careers and increase access to proven programs like dual enrollment and work-based learning. Plus, in a rare bipartisan move, Congressional leaders come together to protect our schools and communities from gun violence and invest in school safety and student mental health programs. Meanwhile, the Department of Education releases final requirements for Maintenance of Equity under the American Rescue Plan, proposes new Title IX regulations to protect LGBTQI+ students and pregnant students, and issues new school discipline guidance focused on creating safe, inclusive environments in school—particularly for students with disabilities.
