Follett and Red Rock Reports help schools find AARA funds

Follett Software Company recently announced a partnership with RedRock Reports to help states and K-12 school districts identify available ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) funds, and to help find products and communication tools that will address their needs. $44 billion is now available for states and schools under ARRA, and the funds are intended to begin a new educational reform.The partnership will provide educators with tools and information that explain how ARRA funds can be applied toward the purchase of solutions to support “high-performance learning environments and help accomplish the government’s objectives for comprehensive education reform.” Follett Software’s information and resource management products, such as Destiny Library Manager™ and TetraData™, are examples of solutions that can be supported through ARRA funds. The company will offer two webinars to help educators obtain ARRA information, held on May 19 and 20.
