The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has recently received final information from the U.S. Department of Education about the level of funding for the SDFSCA program.
Total Allocation to Virginia $6,414,756
Governors Office (20%) $1,282,951
VDOE (80%) $5,131,805
Of the $5,131,805 allocated to the VDOE, funds will be distributed as follows:
School Divisions (93%) $4,772,578.65
VDOE (7%) $ 359,226.35
Information about an expected 21 percent overall reduction in funding was provided to SDFSCA school division coordinators in February 2006. Preliminary funding information was also provided to the coordinators as a part of their technical assistance workshop on May 18, 2006.
The attached table provides a listing by school division of the final Title IV, Part A entitlements. This information varies only slightly from the preliminary estimates provided to the coordinators in rounded dollars. While some school division allocations remained exactly the same, some school divisions gained a few cents while others may have lost a few cents.
Questions regarding the Title IV program should be directed to Arlene Cundiff, coordinator of the safe and drug-free schools program, via e-mail Arlene.Cundiff@doe.virginia.gov or telephone (804-225-2871) or to Jo Ann Burkholder, safe and drug-free schools program specialist, via e-mail Joann.Burkholder@doe.virginia.gov or telephone (804)371-7586.
