SUBJECT: Carry-over Guidelines for Carl Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Funds

The purpose of this memorandum is to inform you that school divisions will be allowed to carry over unspent Fiscal Year 01 Perkins federal funds until August 15, 2001. 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 2000-01 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, 2001. All funds not expended by school divisions before August 15 and not claimed before the September 30, 2001, deadline will be reallocated in the 2001-02 revised allocations to school divisions.

Should you want additional information or have questions about carrying over Perkins funds, please contact Dr. Neils W. Brooks (mailto:nbrooks@pen.k12.va.us), director, Career and Technical Education Services, at (804) 225-2847 or Bob Almond (mailto:ralmond@pen.k12.va.us), grants administrator, Career and Technical Education Services, at (804) 225-3349.
