ADMINISTRATIVE

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: 1995-96 Annual School Report

 
  Enclosed are two (2) sets of forms, a diskette, and
  instructions for compiling data for the Annual School
  Report.  The modified accrual basis of accounting is to be
  used for preparing the financial section.
  
  In keeping with the Commonwealth's goal of efficiency in
  government, the Department is requesting school divisions to
  submit the financial section on the enclosed diskette and
  also provide a printed copy of the diskette.  Each school
  division submitting the financial section on diskette will
  reduce processing time by approximately one-third.  This
  will allow the Department to compile and produce the Annual
  School Report in less time, with a reduction in cost. 
  Complete diskette instructions are included in this package.
  
  Funding for technology, for the 1995-96 school year, was
  received from two sources.  The Middle School Technology was
  funded by state funds as shown on the A703 Locality Ledger
  and should be reported under revenue source code 2402760. 
  Networking and Elementary School Technology was funded
  through the Virginia Public School Authority (VPSA).  These
  funds are not part of the state funds received for
  technology and should be reported under revenue source code
  4104050.
