INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Career and Technical Education Federal Perkins Act Funds for July 1, 2006, Through June 30, 2007

 

The Department of Education is pleased to provide school divisions with the Career and Technical Education Federal Perkins allocations for the 2006-2007 school year. Please refer to the attachments for funding allocations and the request for reimbursement form.

 

The grant period extends from July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007; however, the funds will be distributed to the state in two allocations. Thirty-four percent will be available beginning July 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007. Beginning October 1, 2006, the remaining 66 percent will be available through June 30, 2007. There is no provision for Perkins funds to be carried over to the next school year, which means that all funds must be spent by June 30, 2007.

 

Attachment A is a printout reflecting 34 percent of the estimated Perkins funds available to each school division beginning July 1, 2006. Because the state and school divisions cannot expend more than the 34 percent allocation during the July 1 through September 30, 2006, time period, funds will be distributed on a reimbursement basis for actual expenditures not to exceed the 34 percent allocation.

 

Attachment B lists the remaining 66 percent of the funds allocated and available October 1, 2006, through June 30, 2007. These funds also will be distributed on a reimbursement basis.

Reimbursement for this program should be made through the Single Sign on Web Application System (SSWS) through the Online Management of Education Grant Awards (OMEGA). If you do not have access to this system, please e-mail Omega.Support@doe.virginia.gov to establish your user permission. All expenditures must be consistent with the approved local application.

 

Any questions concerning the allocations may be addressed to Terry Dougherty, grants administrator, via e-mail Terry.Dougherty@doe.virginia.gov or telephone (804) 225-3349, or James A. Gray, Jr., associate director for career and technical education, via e-mail Jim.Gray@doe.virginia.gov or telephone (804) 225-2833.
