INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction 

 

SUBJECT:

Revision to 2006-2007 Title I, Part A, and Title I, Part D, Subpart 2, Allocations under Provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, Public Law 107-110

 

This communication is to inform you of revisions to the 2006-2007 Title I, Part A, and Title I, Part D, Subpart 2, allocations that were released in Superintendents Memorandum, Informational Number 144, dated July 28, 2006. The revisions are necessary because of an error in U.S. Census Bureau poverty data used to generate the Title I allocations. The amounts noted for each school division are based on the best information available at this time from the U.S. Department of Education (USED).

 

Attachment A contains a spreadsheet that shows the revised 2006-2007 allocation. The Virginia Department of Education will allocate the revised amount to object code 0000 through the Online Management of Education Grant Award (OMEGA) system. A budget transfer will need to be completed by school divisions to distribute the changes in allocation to appropriate budget object codes. If this adjustment resulted in a school division receiving an allocation of $500,000 or greater, one percent of the total allocation must be set aside for parental involvement.

 

If you have questions regarding the revised 2006-2007 Title I allocation, please contact Mr. Kent Dickey, budget director, at 804-225-2025 or by e-mail at Kent.Dickey@doe.virginia.gov.
