ED Secretary Duncan to Announce First Round of Education Stimulus Funding
Tomorrow Secretary Duncan will visit Doswell Brooks Elementary School in Capital Heights, Maryland, to announce the first round of education stimulus funding available from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Doswell Brooks is a 2008 Title I Distinguished School in the Prince George’s County school district, where administrators plan to use ARRA funds to avoid employee furloughs, layoffs, increases in class sizes, and other education program cuts. Fact sheets and guidance on how states and school districts can begin receiving this first installment of education stimulus funding will be available at www.ed.gov/recovery.
