Education Jobs Fund in West Virginia
The Education Jobs Fund (Ed Jobs) program was a Federal program that provided $10 billion in assistance to States to save or create education jobs. Jobs funded under this program included those that provided educational and related services for early childhood, elementary, and secondary education.
In 2010, the U.S. Department of Education awarded the State of West Virginia $54,657,667 in Ed Jobs funds that was sub-granted to Local Educational Agencies (LEAs). In 2011, an additional $807,770 was awarded through Ed Jobs bringing the total awarded to the State to $55,465,437.
To ensure transparency and accountability for the proper use of the Ed Jobs funds, regular desktop reviews and onsite monitoring visits were performed throughout the grant term which ended on September 30, 2012. Thirty-eight (38) of the fifty-five (55) county board of education were monitored onsite, with desk monitoring performed for the remaining counties. The Governor's Office and the U.S. Department of Education have three years to perform additional monitoring and audits, if deemed necessary.
