|FROM:||Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||March 31, 1997 Average Daily Membership (ADM)|
Final entitlements of State Basic School Aid and related accounts for school year 1996-97 will be determined on the basis of average daily membership (ADM) through March 31, 1997. Data from the Attachment will be used to compute this ADM. A careful review is recommended of Sections 22.1-1 through 22.1-5, 22.1-101, 22.1-218, Code of Virginia, as amended, and all the instructions on pages 3, 4 and 5 of the Attachment prior to completion of page 2 of the Attachment. Please note that appropriate supporting documentation must be maintained for each line of this report to facilitate a subsequent ADM audit review. Page 6 of the Attachment is designed to adjust kindergarten ADM for those localities operating less than full-day kindergarten classes (5 1/2 hours), and maintaining pupil-teacher ratios of more than 30:1. In order for the May EFT transfer to reflect final ADM based entitlements, it is important that the Attachment (pages 1, 2, and 6) be completed by all school divisions and returned to Ms. Doris B. West, Senior Budget Analyst, no later than April 11, 1997. This report may be faxed to the Department on (804) 225-2053. Questions may be directed to Ms. West at (804) 225-2091. RTL:dw Attachment: A hard copy of this memo and its attachment will be sent to the superintendent's office.
