Planning the Possible: How Schools Can Use Stimulus
Dollars for Lasting Impact
This publication is a result of ASCD leaders considering the
confluence of events—the recession, the new administration,
and the passing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment
Act—and deciding to act.
As decision makers around the country face difficult choices
about how best to serve their educators, students, and community,
ASCD is here to assist.
We provide explanations of how the funding in the stimulus package is to be used;
what sustained capacity building professional development can do to improve student
achievement in individual schools, districts, and states; and what resources are available to
help educators along the way.
