INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM:
 
William C. Bosher, Jr.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT:
 
Correction to Informational Supts. Memo. No. 1 Comparison 
of State Aid Allocations 1995-96 to 1996-97 as Proposed

 
  Via Supts. Memo. No. 1 (Informational), dated January 5,
  1996, I sent to you an analysis which provided a comparison
  of state aid projected for 1995-96 and for 1996-97 as
  proposed by the Governor.  This analysis provided both
  dollar and per pupil allocations.  Due to an oversight, this
  chart did not include the technology funds for elementary
  libraries and networking which you are receiving in 1995-96. 
  Attached you will find a corrected chart which more
  accurately reflects the increases from 1995-96 to 1996-97.
  
  As you will see, on a statewide basis, an increase of $143
  per student is provided in the Governor's Budget as
  introduced.  Only nine localities are experiencing a
  decrease in per pupil aid, primarily due to increases in the
  local composite index or significant decreases in special
  education student counts.
  
  I apologize for this error and will take steps to ensure
  that the revised information is provided to those
  individuals who received the original analysis.  I hope that
  you will be able to use this revised chart to assist you in
  analyzing the Governor's Budget as introduced.  If you have
  questions or need additional information, please call Mrs.
  Kathryn S. Kitchen, Division Chief, Finance, at (804) 225-2025.
