School Districts' Perspectives on the Economic Stimulus Package: School Improvement Grants Present Uncertainty and Opportunity
Scott, Caitlin
Center on Education Policy
The information in this report is drawn from the responses of a nationally representative sample of school districts to a broader Center on Education Policy (CEP) survey on American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) administered in the spring of 2010. Survey responses were weighted to draw conclusions for all districts in the 50 states based on this representative sample. This is CEP's third report on ARRA. The first, released in December 2009, focuses on state-level implementation. The second, published in July 2010, describes school districts' use of State Fiscal Stabilization Fund (SFSF) grants and the supplemental funding provided by ARRA for the Title I program and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The second report contains additional information about districts' use of SFSF grants to provide supports and interventions to turn around low-performing schools; this activity is one of four reforms that states and districts must address to receive SFSF funding. Appended are: (1) Study Methods; (2) General Information about Confidence Intervals and Statistical Significance; and (3) Confidence Intervals for Survey Responses. (Contains 2 tables, 3 figures, 2 exhibits and 1 footnote.)
