FROM:       Jo Lynne DeMary
            Superintendent of Public Instruction

SUBJECT:    1999-2000 Status Questionnaire and 2000-01 Driver Education
            Program Approval
 

We need your assistance with the collection of the 1999-2000 Status Questionnaire data, Attachment A, and the completion of the 2000-01 Driver Education Program Approval Application, Attachment B. A copy of the attachment will also be mailed to your principals.

The information submitted on the Status Questionnaire will determine your 1999-2000 per pupil state basic aid reimbursement for driver education. In addition, this information will be used by school boards that elect to charge an in-car driver education fee. The fee charged, plus the per pupil driver education basic aid reimbursement, may not exceed the actual average per pupil cost.

School codes and other program and teacher information reported on your 2000-01 program approval application, Attachment B, will also be communicated to the Department of Motor Vehicles. Please indicate the place and date of the paraprofessional driver education in-service training required by the Code of Virginia. We would appreciate receiving this information no later than June 30, 2000.

If you have questions please contact Vanessa C. Wigand (vwigand@pen.k12.va.us), specialist for health, physical education and driver education at (804) 225-3300.
