Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

2004-2005 Title III, Part A, Entitlements under Provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Public Law 107-110

 

Attached are the 2004-2005 Title III, Part A, federal allocations for school divisions that qualify based on the fall 2003 enrollment of limited English proficient (LEP) students and/or immigrant and youth students.

 

The total amount of the allocation is available to school divisions as of July 1, 2004, through the reimbursement process. School divisions that receive less than $10,000 through the LEP grant award allocation must apply in consortium with one or more school divisions to be eligible to receive the award. This limitation does not apply for the immigrant and youth award.

 

Grant award letters will be issued to school divisions upon the receipt of approvable applications by the Virginia Department of Education. The procedures and forms for submitting a consolidated or individual application are available on the Department of Educations ESL Web page at: http://www.pen.k12.va.us/VDOE/Instruction/ESL/#nclb. School divisions that have not submitted applications should do so immediately.

 

If you have already submitted an application, a revised application that reflects the 2004-2005 grant award amount will need to be submitted.
