The article provides information on how to spend the allocated American Recovery Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus fund for U.S. school districts in a smart way. It suggests that putting stimulus dollars into short-term investments that pay long-term dividends is a smart way to spend the allocated stimulus fund for school districts. It adds that finding a review process to identify a district's existing strengths and potential problems could also be a smart use of ARRA money.
