INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

2006-2007 Title III, Part A, Entitlements under Provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Public Law 107-110

 

Attached are the 2006-2007 Title III, Part A, federal allocations for school divisions that qualify based on the fall 2005 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, 2006, through the reimbursement process. School divisions that receive less than $10,000 through the LEP grant award allocation must apply in a 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.

 

Upon receipt of an approvable application by the Virginia Department of Education, the school division will receive an e-mail with instructions to log onto the Online Management of Education Grant Awards (OMEGA) system to review the grant award notifications and to distribute the budgets to the object code level. Questions regarding this process should be sent to OMEGA SUPPORT at omega.support@doe.virginia.gov or call (804) 225-2040.

 

School divisions that have not submitted applications should do so immediately. The procedures and forms for submitting a consolidated or individual application are available on the Department of Educations ESL website at: http://www.doe.virginia.gov/VDOE/Instruction/ESL/#nclb.

 

If you have already submitted an application, a revised application reflecting the 2006-2007 grant award amount will need to be submitted.

 

If you have questions, please contact Val Gooss, ESL coordinator, at (804) 786-1692, or Valerie.Gooss@doe.virginia.gov or Stacy Freeman, ESL specialist, at (804) 371-0778, or Stacy.Freeman@doe.virginia.gov.
