Read the U.S. Department of Education Clarifying Guidance on the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
The U.S. Department of Education requires that Local Education Agencies (LEAs) report the number of Jobs Created and Retained as a result of funding received through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) & Education Jobs Fund. Only districts and charter schools that have ARRA allocations are required to complete the survey. In this survey, school districts and charter schools will be asked to provide the number of Full-Time Equivalents (FTEs) created or retained during the reporting period. As you prepare to complete this survey, please read the instructions on how to complete the ARRA Jobs Reporting Survey and the instructions on how to complete the Vendor Survey.
