SUPTS. MEMO. NO. 50
July 26, 1996
|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.
