ARRA Section 1511 Certifications
If the LEA intends, within the limitations imposed by ARRA, and other federal or state
statutes, to use funds for infrastructure investments, the chief executive of the school
district or charter school shall certify that the infrastructure investment has received the full review and vetting required by law and that the chief executive accepts responsibility that the infrastructure investment is an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars. This certification shall include a description of the investment, the estimated total cost, and the amount of covered funds to be used, and shall be submitted to DESE for review and for public posting by website and linked to the website established by the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board pursuant to ARRA 1526. The LEA acknowledges that infrastructure investment expenditures may not be made until this certification is made and posted.
