INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: IDEA, Part B Grants for 1996-97

 
  We anticipate that the per pupil amount for the Part B Flow
  Through Grant for 1996-97 will be less than the 1995-96
  amount.  Based on the information we currently have
  available, we are projecting the amount to be $375 per
  pupil. The per pupil amount for the 1995-96 award was $382.
  
  We will issue the Grant Awards to the local school divisions
  upon receipt of the Grant Award from USDOE.  
  
  Questions pertaining to these awards may be directed to Tony
  Faina at (804) 225-2700.
