SUPTS. MEMO NO. 31

February 8, 2008

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, Entitlements 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, allocations that were released through a Superintendent's Memorandum, Informational Number 243, dated November 9, 2006. The 2006-2007 funding allocations for Title I, Part A, and Title I, Part D, were affected due to a downward adjustment to the bypass contract made by the U.S. Department of Education (USED).

 

Attachment A contains a spreadsheet that shows the revised allocation. The funding allocation decreased minimally for the majority of school divisions; this decrease has been absorbed by state administrative funds at the Virginia Department of Education. Therefore, the current allocation in the Online Management of Education Grant Award (OMEGA) system will not change for most school divisions.

 

The funding allocation increased for 8 school divisions, the Staunton School for the Deaf and Blind, and the Hampton School for the Deaf, Blind, and Multi-Disabled due to the bypass contract adjustment. For those school divisions whose allocation increased (noted in bold on the attachment), an amendment to the 2006-2007 application and budget transfer must be submitted through the OMEGA system. If you need technical support with this process, please e-mail OMEGA.Support@doe.virginia.gov or call (804) 371-0993.

 

If you have questions, please contact Mr. Brian Logwood, budget director, at 804-225-2025 or by e-mail at Brian.Logwood@doe.virginia.gov.
