Statement on the House Labor-HHS FY23 Appropriations Bill

“The House Labor-HHS FY23 appropriations bill includes important provisions that acknowledge the critical role of principals and other school leaders in pandemic recovery and learning acceleration efforts. We are disappointed, however, that the School Leader Recruitment and Support Program (SLRSP) was not included, as $40 million was proposed for this program in the President’s budget. We look forward to working with Congress to ensure the final FY2023 spending deal includes dedicated funding to support the heroic efforts of our nation's school leaders.”
