Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Final Supplementary Maximum Basic Authorization and Supplementary Concentration Grants for Title I Fiscal Year 2001-2002

 

Attached are copies of the 2001-2002 Final Supplementary Title I Maximum Basic Authorization Grant Allocations and the Supplementary Concentration Grants totaling $135,223,853 for counties, cities, and towns. These entitlements are allocated to the Commonwealth of Virginia under the provisions of Public Law 107-20. The U.S. Department of Education allocated the preliminary total grant amounts in two phases: Phase 1 July 1, 2001 (approximately 22 percent)and Phase 2 October 1, 2001 (approximately 78 percent). However, President Bush provided a one-time supplemental appropriation increasing Virginias preliminary Maximum Basic Grants and Concentration Grants by $2,637,534. Certain school divisions will receive concentration funds appropriated under Title I of the Improving Americas Schools Act of 1994, as amended by Public Law 103-382. This supplementary appropriation should be added to the Supplementary Maximum Basic Authorization for the total amount available in the 2001-2002 school year.

The Supplementary Maximum Basic Authorization for 2001-2002 is subject to further adjustments for implementing the Bypass provision of Section 1120 of Public Law 103-382 for services to children enrolled in private schools. The Supplementary Maximum Basic Authorization for each of the affected school divisions has been adjusted downward.

 

 

 

Separate accounting procedures for the Final Supplementary Maximum Basic Authorization and Supplementary Concentration Grants are not required. These funds may be carried over to the 2002-2003 school year. Project applications for 2001-2002 should be amended to reflect the increased amount of the one-time supplemental grant allocations. Please submit amendments to the appropriate Title I specialist, Office of Compensatory Programs, Division of Instructional Support Services.

 

If you have questions, please contact George H. Irby, director, Office of Compensatory Programs, Division of Instructional Support Services, at (804) 225-2869 or mailto:girby@mail.vak12ed.edu.
