TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Requisition For Supplies - Virginia School Bus Safe Driving Awards Program


  The attached EB.026 Form, "Requisition For Supplies-Virginia
  School Bus Safe Driving Awards Program", should be 
  submitted when ordering school bus safe driving award items. 
  As indicated on the form in the Unit Price Column, there is
  no charge for the basic safe driving award certificates and
  cards.  There is, however, a minimal charge per unit shown
  for all other award items in that column.

  For school divisions participating in the Virginia School
  Bus Safe Driving Awards Program, it is now in its
  seventeenth year.   Only first through seventeenth year
  awards or additional shoulder patches can be ordered for the
  1996-97 school year.  Do not order additional number panels
  or certificates as back-up stock.  Orders will be shipped
  and invoiced as soon as possible after receipt of the
  requisition form.  Please allow two weeks for delivery. 
  Most deliveries will be made by United Parcel Service (UPS);
  therefore, please make certain that  the mailing label is
  completed on the requisition form for UPS delivery.  UPS
  will not deliver to a post office box.  Upon receipt of the
  award items, please open and inventory immediately.

  Requests for additional information on the Virginia School
  Bus Safe Driving Awards Program, or award supplies, should
  be directed to Robert F. Cere, Jr. at 804/225-2037.
