ARRA Infrastructure Certifications

Section 1511 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) requires the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dr. Tony Evers, to certify that any infrastructure investment made with covered funds under the ARRA has received the full review and vetting required by law and that Dr. Evers accepts responsibility that the infrastructure investment is an appropriate use of taxpayer dollars. These certifications, along with a description of the investment, estimated total cost, and amount of ARRA funds to be used, must be posted on the department’s website and linked to the Recovery Accountability and Transparency Board website at www.recovery.gov. A local educational agency may not use funds under the ARRA for infrastructure investments until this certification is made and posted. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) identifies infrastructure investments as remodeling and construction projects, as well as permanent equipment and/or fixtures.

The overall purpose of Wisconsin’s investment of IDEA Recovery funds in school infrastructure is to improve programming for children with disabilities. The infrastructure investments address deficits in program elements related to the specific needs of children with disabilities.

The certifications below include all projects that have been reviewed and vetted in accordance with Section 1511 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. It is at the discretion of the local educational agencies to determine if modifications or cancellation of the project must occur. If changes to an infrastructure investment project are to be made, the specific changes must be submitted to the Department of Public Instruction for review, vetting and posting to the website as an additional project; both the original and modified infrastructure investment projects will be posted.
