Next Week: More Stimulus Guidance, Title I Changes

In a conference call with reporters today—in which there really was no news to report—Education Secretary Arne Duncan said his office will issue more guidance on the stimulus package either Monday or Tuesday of next week.

You can expect this guidance (which will be the second round) to more clearly spell out how the department wants states to distribute stabilization fund dollars to local districts. This has been the subject of debate in a lot of states, and is also the topic for a story I'm working on for our next issue of EdWeek.

Separately, the Department says changes to Title I regulations will be out on Tuesday. These regs, which then-Secretary Margaret Spellings issued on her way out, deal with everything from how states define graduation rates to how states should ensure access to tutoring and choice for students under No Child Left Behind.
