INFORMATIONAL

TO: Division Superintendents
FROM: JoLynne DeMary
Acting Superintendent of Public Instruction
SUBJECT: Adjustment for Tuition Payment to the Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind for Fiscal Year 2000


 Each year, state basic aid payments are adjusted for students enrolled at one of the 
Virginia Schools for the Deaf and the Blind.  If you have a student from your school 
division enrolled at one of these schools, the appropriation act requires that the 
Department of Education adjust your state basic aid payment to capture the local 
share of the basic aid per pupil amount.  These funds are then transferred to the 
schools to offset the cost of educating those students.

Attachment A reflects the basic aid adjustment for the tuition payment to the 
Hampton and Staunton schools.  This adjustment is based on the December 1, 1999, 
child count for each school.  Your basic aid entitlement will be adjusted to reflect 
the amounts indicated for your division.

If you have any questions concerning the above, please contact Mrs. June Eanes, 
budget director, at (804) 225-2025.
