Reimbursement Form for Calculator Grants
Administrative Superintendents Memo No. 166, dated August 13, 2004, informed school divisions of the availability of funds that can be used to purchase new scientific and graphing calculators, repair non-functioning calculators, or purchase calculators.
Because these are 2002 grant year federal funds, divisions must encumber the funds by September 30, 2004, and seek reimbursement prior to December 31, 2004. Purchases made between July 1, 2002, and September 30, 2004, are also eligible for grant reimbursement.
The attached reimbursement form is an Excel workbook that contains a copy of Superintendents Memo No. 166, a reimbursement worksheet and a reimbursement form that is automatically generated by the responses to the worksheet.
To complete the reimbursement form,
