SFSF Assurance Indicators and Descriptors

Background
Section 14005(d) of Division A of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) requires a state receiving funds under the SFSF Program to provide assurances in four key areas of education reform:

  1. Achieving Equity in Teacher Distribution
  2. Improving the Collection and Use of Data
  3. Standards and Assessments
  4. Supporting Struggling Schools

For each of these areas of reform, the ARRA prescribes specific actions that the State must assure it will implement. These assurances are in the form of indicators and descriptors, each delineating a specific action to be taken.
