|SUBJECT:||1996 School Census|
In accordance with the provisions of 22.1-281 through 22.1-286, Code of Virginia, March 1 through July 15, 1996, is designated as the period during which the 1996 school census will be conducted and completed. Your summary of census returns is due on or before Thursday, August 15, 1996. Included with this memorandum are sample copies of the forms, instructions, recommended procedures and state statutes relating to the census. Your designated school census contact person will also receive this information. The forms, instructions and report requirements have been modified significantly since the 1992 census. School divisions will submit only a summary count to the Department of Education. This single statistic will be reported electronically and subsequently verified with division superintendents. The census enumeration form has been modified to reflect current statutory requirements and prior approval of locally developed enumeration forms is no longer required. The Department of Education will provide enumeration forms upon request. These forms may be ordered by calling the Management Information Systems Division, 804-225-2099. Please allow one to two weeks for delivery. Should you have any questions or require additional information, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Jerry Mathews, (804) 225-2950, or Ms. Mona Mallory, (804) 225-2949. WCBJr/jt c: A hard copy of this memo and its attachment will be sent to the Superintendent's Office
