INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: JoLynne DeMary
Acting Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Carryover Guidelines for Carl Perkins Vocational Funds


 The purpose of this memorandum is to inform you that school divisions will be 
allowed to carryover unspent Fiscal Year 99-00 Perkins federal funds until 
August 15, 2000. These funds must be expended in accordance with the approved local 
application.  If needed, the school division may amend the local plan to cover 
expenditures for activities not approved in the 1999-2000 local plan.    

Funds are to be expended on or before the August 15 deadline.  A final request for 
reimbursement must be received by the Department of Education on or before September 
30, 2000.  All funds not expended by the local school divisions before August 15 and 
not claimed before the September 30, 2000, deadline will be reallocated in the 
2000-2001 revised allocations to local school divisions.

The information provided in this memorandum will be presented in more detail at the 
Regional Vocational Education Update meetings in March to assist vocational 
administrators in handling unspent Perkins funds.  Should you want additional 
information or have questions about the Perkins carryover before these meetings, 
please contact Dr. Neils W. Brooks at 804/225-2847 or Bob Almond at 804/225-3349.
