Assistant Superintendent for Finance
SUBJECT: March 31, 1998 Average Daily Membership (ADM)

 
  Final entitlements of State Basic School Aid and related
  accounts for school year 1997-98 will be determined on the
  basis of average daily membership (ADM) through March 31,
  1998.  Data submitted by you on the enclosed Attachment will
  be used to compute this ADM.

  Please review Sections 22.1-1 through 22.1-5, 22.1-101, and
  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 in the event a subsequent ADM audit
  or review is needed.

  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 10, 1998.  This report may be faxed to the Department
  on (804) 225-2300.  Questions may be directed to Ms. West at
  (804) 225-2091.
