INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

General Adult Education (GAE) Application for 2007-2008

 

The Virginia Department of Education will make state funds available for the reimbursement of expenditures made by school divisions for local General Adult Education (GAE) programs in fiscal year 2008. Reimbursement will be based on the total 2007-2008 cost of the local GAE programs and the total available state funds.

 

Classes eligible for reimbursement in fiscal year 2008 include adult high school classes for credit, General Educational Development (GED) preparation classes, adult basic education classes, and adult English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) classes. These state funds may not be used for non-credit career and technical education programs.

 

Unlike previous years, you are asked to notify the Office of Adult Education and Literacy of your intent to apply for these funds. This will facilitate the calculation of the minimum amount available to each local program. As a result, you will be provided information on funding prior to the preparation and submission of your application. This will enable you to develop a budget for the application.

 

You should return the attached form stating your intent to apply or not apply for these state funds to Dr. Mike Nusbaum, adult secondary specialist, in the Office of Adult Education and Literacy, no later than April 20, 2007. If you have questions or need additional program information, please contact Dr. Nusbaum via e-mail at Michael.Nusbaum@doe.virginia.gov, or telephone (804) 786-7644. The application packet is also attached for your reference.
