On August 10, 2010, Congress passed legislation creating the Education Jobs Fund (“Ed Jobs”), which provides $10 billion in federal education aid to states. The funding must be used to “retain or create education jobs.” Connecticut will receive approximately $110 million in one-time federal aid through this program. The State must pass this funding directly to school districts.

The School Law Practice Group at Shipman & Goodwin LLP has prepared this School Law Alert to help Connecticut school districts understand how Ed Jobs will impact them. To view this alert, please click here.
