PA Plan for using Stimulus funds in education

State issues plan for education stimulus funds

The Rendell Administration plans to use $418 million of the state fiscal stabilization dollars from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in school districts’ basic education subsidy allocations for the 2009-10 fiscal year.

The funding will replace the governor’s original budget proposal, which sought to use $300 million in state funds for basic education next year.

The $418 million in stabilization dollars will allow the Commonwealth to maintain its commitment to close school districts’ funding gaps by the 2013-14 fiscal year by providing Pennsylvania with much-needed dollars as the funds originally proposed by the governor are needed to close other budget holes.
