INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Richard T. La Pointe
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Vocational Education Entitlements for 1997-98

 
  Attached is a printout reflecting the 1997-98 Carl Perkins
  Federal entitlements for each school division.  These funds
  will be distributed in the following manner once your local
  plan has been approved: 50 percent of the entitlement on the
  December 30, 1997, EFT  and 30 percent on the March 15, 1998,
  EFT.  The remaining 20 percent of the entitlement must be
  requested through the reimbursement process.  Instructions and
  forms will be sent out at a later date explaining how to claim
  the remaining 20 percent.

  A Supts. Memo. concerning state entitlements for Occupational
  Preparation, Adult, and Equipment will be distributed once the
  accountability report has been received from all school
  divisions and has been audited.  School divisions may use the
  amount of state funds they received in 1996-97 as an estimate
  for 1997-98 until final entitlements are computed.  

  Any questions concerning the entitlements may be addressed to
  Mrs. June Eanes, Budget Director, at (804) 225-2060, or Mrs.
  Leigh H. Williams, Budget Analyst, at (804) 225-2031.  If
  additional information is needed, please contact Dr. Neils
  Brooks, Director, Office of Vocational and Adult Education
  Services, at (804) 225-2847.
