The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is a federal bill that was signed into law on February 17, 2009. This bill provides new, one-time funding for school districts through three main streams: the State Fiscal Stabilization Fund, Title I programs and programs under the Individuals with Disabilities Act.
The Jackson County School District received Title I, Part A, ARRA funding. This grant was approved on September 21, 2009 . The total grant amount awarded to the district for Title I ARRA was $697,855. The seven Title I schools (lower and upper elementary schools) were then allocated amounts from this total based upon the percentage of free/reduced students in the school.
The District and Title I schools conducted needs assessments and planning meetings to determine how Title I ARRA funds would be spent.
Title I ARRA funds are being spent in the following ways:
The District received $27, 916.07 for Homeless ARRA funds. These funds will be used for tutorial services, parent materials and supplies for students identified as Homeless.
The Jackson County School District is committed to “Raising the Standards” for students through ARRA funds.
