American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Grant Funds
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) has five (5) components of ARRA education funding granted to Marietta City Schools. ARRA funds are subject to additional and more rigorous reporting requirements than normally applied to grant recipients.
- Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act
Funding to supplement the education of economically-disadvantaged students
- Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Part B
Funding to supplement the education of students with disabilities
- Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) Preschool
Funding to supplement the education of preschool students with disabilities.
- State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF)
Funds awarded to governors in exchange for a commitment to advance essential education reforms to benefit students from early learning through post-secondary education.
- School Food Service Equipment Funds
Funding to purchase food service equipment for school cafeterias.
Four principles guide the distribution and use of ARRA funds: Spend funds quickly to save and create jobs; improve student achievement through school improvement and reform; ensure transparency, reporting and accountability; and invest one-time ARRA funds thoughtfully to minimize the "funding cliff."
