|FROM:||Jo Lynne DeMary
Superintendent of Public Instruction
|SUBJECT:||Remedial Summer School Funding for Fiscal Year 2002 (Summer 2001 Program)|
State funding is provided in the 2000-2002 appropriation act (Chapter 1073, 2000 Acts of Assembly) for those school divisions opting to offer a remedial summer program in summer 2001 (fiscal year 2002) pursuant to Section 22.1-253.13:1 C., Code of Virginia. For fiscal year 2002, state payments will be based on the state share of $353 per eligible pupil, subject to the availability of funds. The state share of the per pupil payment will be based on the composite index of local ability-to-pay for each school division.
Entitlements will be paid in two installments. The first payment, in August 2001, will be based on one-half of the estimated enrollment submitted on Attachment A. The final payment, scheduled for October 2001, will be based on actual enrollments submitted on Attachment B. The actual entitlement for each division will be transmitted in a final Superintendentís Memorandum in October.
Please return the completed Attachment A to Mrs. Leigh H. Williams, senior budget analyst, no later than August 3, 2001. Attachment B should be returned no later than September 7, 2001. Both attachments may be faxed to Mrs. Williams at (804) 225-2300; however, Attachment B should also be returned with an original signature. School divisions opting not to participate should return both attachments indicating "No Funding Requested" and zero enrollment as appropriate. Questions should be directed to Mrs. Williams at (804) 225-2025.
