Career and Technical Education Equipment Allocations and Forms for Fiscal Year 2007

 

The 2006 General Assembly increased funding for equipment allocations (Item 135.C.21.b. of Chapter 3) for Career and Technical Education to $1,800,000 for fiscal year 2007. Attached are the career and technical education state equipment allocations (Attachment A), regional center state equipment allocations (Attachment B) for fiscal year 2007, and the reimbursement form (Attachment C). Reimbursement request forms should be submitted to W. Terry Dougherty, grants administrator, career and technical education, any time during this fiscal year prior to June 15, 2007. Reimbursement for regional centers will be made to the school division serving as the fiscal agent.

 

Reimbursements may be submitted for the equipment listed in the Recommended Equipment Approved for Career and Technical Education Programs, 2006 edition, which can be found on the Department of Educations Web page at http://www.doe.virginia.gov/VDOE/Instruction/CTE/regulations/equipment.html. All other purchased equipment must have a letter of prior approval from a Department of Education career and technical education program area specialist. Invoices are not to be submitted with requests, but must be maintained at the division level for audit purposes.

 

An inventory of equipment purchased with career and technical education funds must be kept for all purchased items. Record/Item Numbers can be referenced from the Recommended Equipment Approved for Career and Technical Education Programs document under the individual program service number headings. The itemized list and invoices for each program service showing the total amount claimed on the reimbursement request must be on file at the division level for audit purposes.

 

Reimbursements for eligible equipment in fiscal year 2007 will be 50 percent of the total expenditures claimed, not to exceed your approved allocation.
