Jobs Summary: The Title I portion of the ARRA was an increase to the allocation under ESEA Sections 1125 and 1125A for Title I Part A. Sub-recipients of ARRA Title I included 650 public school districts and 150 charter school local educational agencies. Recipients used the funds primarily to cover compensatory education expenses not previously funded by Title I. The ability to pay for a higher proportion of allowable Title I positions freed up funds for other purposes including instructional positions and professional development opportunities for teachers such as through literacy coaching. ARRA Title I funds were used to save existing positions (especially in academic intervention services) and to create new ones (especially for professional development). Recipients estimate that they will save or create more than 6,000 positions. Almost 80 percent of sub-recipients reported in the first quarter. (Total jobs reported: 6,101)
Project Status: Less Than 50% Completed
