In the spring of 2009, Sue, Jill and Jon-Paul were among 58 counselors in the district who were notified that their jobs would be eliminated due to Fairfax County Public Schools $120 million budget deficit. Through the ARRA, the school district received $23.7 million dollars in stimulus money. Some of the funding was used to save all 58 counselor positions, ensuring that students would receive necessary academic and emotional support. In February 2009, ARRA allocated $100 billion to the U.S. Department of Education with the goal of delivering emergency education funding to fill significant education budget gaps in order to avert layoffs of personnel in school districts and universities across the nation. According to www.recovery.gov, approximately 325,000 education jobs were either created or saved so far.
