Follett Software Company has announced that it has entered into a partnership with RedRock Reports to help states and K-12 school districts identify available ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) funds and the products and communication tools that will best address their needs.
A total of $44 billion for states and schools is now available under ARRA, which is designed to lay the foundation for a generation of educational reform.
Earlier this month, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said, "Given our economic circumstances, it's critical that money go out quickly, but it’s even more important that it be spent wisely. Every dollar we spend must advance reforms and improve learning."
The Follett Software-RedRock Reports partnership will provide educators with tools and information that define how available ARRA funds can be applied toward the purchase of solutions to support high-performance learning environments and help accomplish the government's objectives for comprehensive education reform. Follett Software's information and resource management products – Destiny Library Manager, Destiny Textbook Manager, Destiny Asset Manager, and TetraData – are the type of solutions that impact student achievement and support 21st century learning which are key government goals for smart spending of ARRA funds, according to the announcement.
Follett Software will be offering two upcoming webinars to further assist educators in obtaining ARRA information. These webinars will be held on May 19 and 20.
