SUBJECT: Adjustment to Basic Aid for the Cost of Educating Students at the Virginia Schools for the Deaf and Blind

 
  Attached is a printout reflecting the 1997-98 adjustment to
  Basic Aid for each school division's share of the cost of
  educating children at VSDB-Hampton and VSDB-Staunton. 
  Please note that the data used to calculate the adjustment
  to Basic Aid and the actual transfer to the two schools are
  based on enrollment data for the 1996-97 school year.  This
  adjustment will be made on the May 16, 1998 EDI, along with
  the Residential Governor's Schools, Foreign Language
  Academies, Mental Health/Mental Retardation transfer, and
  the Electronic Classroom.

  In order to maintain proper accounting for the funds
  involved, it is necessary for each school division to note,
  in its Annual School Report submission, the gross receipt of
  Basic School Aid funds under line 2402020 "Basic School
  Aid."  Total expenditures need to be reported in the
  Function of Instruction, Purchased Services, under the
  respective program(s).

  If you have any questions, please call Mrs. June Eanes,
  Budget Director, at (804) 225-2060.
