ADMINISTRATIVE

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: Paul D. Stapleton
Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Final Allocations for Title II, Dwight D. Eisenhower Professional Development Program


The U.S. Department of Education has notified the Virginia Department of
Education of a final allocation of $5,178,551 for Title II, Part B, the
Dwight D. Eisenhower Professional Development Program of the Elementary 
and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1994. The attached table of Title 
II "Final Entitlements" shows the allocation of Title II funds among school 
divisions. The computations under the subtitle, "Proportional Allocations 
of Total" show the required and allowable distribution of those funds at the 
local level.  These computations are based on provisions in the Title II 
legislation. 

The Commonwealth has been granted a waiver under Section 2206B of Title II; 
therefore, divisions are not required to adhere to a funding priority of 
75 percent of the total allocation for math and science programs. Figures 
in the allocation tables should be used in developing the Title II application 
for the 1999-2000 school year. Peer review of all Title II applications will 
take place in September.  Therefore, all applications should be submitted on 
or before September 10, 1999. 

Questions regarding the completion of your application or about the attached 
allocation tables should be directed to either Dr. Marie Spriggs Jones, 
or Mrs. Dianne Pollard, education program specialists, at (804) 786-0790 
or 371-7583.
