Federal stimulus funding on the way to Mahoning Valley schools



Published: Mon, March 9, 2009 @ 4:50 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Local school districts will be getting more than $10 million as the first installment in Title 1 stimulus funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Estimates show the districts will receive more than $21 million in total Title 1 funding under the bill’s two-year time frame, but about half of that money will be arriving within the next 30 to 45 days, said Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education.

The first round of school funding will help avert hundreds of thousands of estimated teacher layoffs in schools and school districts while driving crucial education improvements, reforms and results for students.
