The U.S. Department of Education is hosting a webinar on Tuesday, June 15th from 1:00 - 2:30 CST.  The presentation is entitled, "Strategic Use of Title I & IDEA Funds: How to Maximize ARRA, FFY 08, FFY09 & FFY10 Funds." Instructions for registration are provided below. This webinar is for both state agency folks as well as school district staff.

The purpose of this webinar is to discuss appropriations and the carry over funds. With regard to carry over funds, they will focus in large part on the $11.7 Billion in IDEA Recovery Act dollars that  were awarded in 2009 and are available until September 30th, 2011.  They would also like to remind us to draw down, when possible, FY 2009 funds first, followed by FY 2010 funds (regular and ARRA), before using the FY
