American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009
The purpose of ARRA is to stimulate the US
economy in the short term and invest in education and other essential
public services to ensure the long-term economic health of the nation.
The use of ARRA funds is intended to strengthen education, drive
reforms, and improve results for students from early learning through
college. These funds are to be used to improve student achievement and
help close the achievement gap. For a more complete
description, view the entire description document here.
A vital part of ARRA reporting is a focus on
ensuring that all students are afforded the opportunity to work with
effective teachers and principals. This page links to information that
will help the reader understand how teachers and principals in Anne
Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) are evaluated.
