SUPTS. MEMO NO. 35

February 11, 2005

 

INFORMATIONAL


TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Jo Lynne DeMary

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Technical Amendments to Board of Education Regulation Entitled Classification of Expenditures (8 VAC 20-210)

 

The Board of Education recently completed technical amendments to its regulation entitled Classification of Expenditures (8 VAC 20-210) to align the regulation with recent changes in the Code of Virginia. The regulation was amended to include the major classifications as required by the Virginia Code, ( 22.1-115), which requires the board to prescribe the following major classifications: instruction; administration, attendance and health; pupil transportation; operation and maintenance; school food services and other noninstructional operations; facilities; debt and fund transfers; and contingency reserves.

 

The administrative impact on the localities related to the amended regulation is insignificant, and the fiscal impact is minimal. School divisions are currently reporting in the classifications as specified in the Code; therefore, no change in local policy or practices is anticipated.

 

The text of the regulation, as amended, is attached.

 

Questions may be directed to Mrs. Anne Wescott, assistant superintendent for policy and communications at the Virginia Department of Education (Anne.Wescott@doe.virginia.gov) at (804) 225-2403.
