NORTHEAST  WISCONSIN  SCHOOLS  TO  RECEIVE  OVER  $37 MILLION  THROUGH  THE  RECOVERY  ACT

(APPLETON, WI)  Congressman Steve Kagen, M.D. is proud to announce that school districts in Northeast Wisconsin will receive $37,450,513 in funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  The funds were allocated for three programs: Title I, IDEA K-12 and IDEA Preschool.

“This is a great step towards getting our economy on the right track as well as an investment in our future and our children’s futures,” said Kagen.  “I am working hard to make sure that future generations receive the education they need to build a better future for all of us.”

Wisconsin schools now have access to all of the funding provided through two elements of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  The funds support educational services and parent outreach in schools with high poverty rates, special education, and early interventions to keep students on track in academics and behavior.

Earlier this year, Wisconsin approved $366 million statewide in Recovery Act funds for school districts, flowing through two existing federal programs: the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. The state was given immediate access to half of that funding, or $183 million. The remaining $183 million was slated for release by the U.S. Department of Education on September 30, but has been made available early.  Wisconsin’s total Recovery Act allocation through IDEA, Part B, is $218 million. Title I allotments in the state total $148 million. School districts have until Sept. 30, 2011, to spend the funds.

“The Recovery Act is making historic investments in education – staving off layoffs of teachers and other education-related jobs while improving public schools and making college more affordable.  We have taken action to put our nation on the road to economic recovery.  Everyone understands these actions will take time to succeed, but we are moving in the right direction,” said Kagen.

The funding is allocated using existing federal formula based on enrollment of students in need. The Recovery Act also provides competitive grants for teacher incentive funding and teacher quality enhancement.

Funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act will go to school districts as follows (numbers represent total Title I, IDEA K-12 and IDEA preschool funding for each school district):
