The article discusses rules for use of money awarded to states for U.S.Title I education programs under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). The Department of Education has released draft rules on applying for waivers to use the money more flexibly than Title I rules normally require. Jeff Simering, director of legislative services for the Council of the Great City Schools, said the guidance was critical for districts but came too late for some districts that had to meet deadlines.
