SUBJECT:

Career and Technical Education Federal Perkins Act Carry-Over Allocations for Rural School Divisions for the Period July 1, 2007 through June 30, 2008

 

The Department of Education is pleased to provide rural school divisions with additional local allocations for Career and Technical Education Federal Perkins Grant Fiscal Year 2006 carry-over funds based on the federal formula. Please refer to the attachment for the additional carry-over funding allocations. These additional funds will be distributed on a reimbursement basis.

 

Each school division must submit a revised, separate CTEMS 2B and 2C of the School Year 2006 2007 local plan, prior to expenditure of these additional Perkins dollars. These carry-over funds must be expended prior to any current allocated 2007 2008 Perkins funds. There is no provision for the Perkins Fiscal Year 2006 carry-over funds to be carried over to the next school year.

 

If you have any questions concerning submitting a revised School Year 2006 2007 local plan, please contact Anne Rowe, career cluster coordinator, career and technical education, via e-mail at Anne.Rowe@doe.virginia.gov or telephone at (804) 225-2838 or George Willcox, career cluster coordinator, career and technical education, via e-mail George.Willcox@doe.virginia.gov or telephone at (804) 225-2839.

 

These funds will also be distributed on a reimbursement basis. Reimbursement for this program should be made through the Single Sign-on Web Application System (SSWS) through the Online Management of Education Grant Awards (OMEGA). If you do not have access to this system, please e-mail Omega.Support@doe.virginia.gov to establish your user permission. All expenditures must be consistent with the approved revised local plan.

 

School divisions requiring reimbursement by June 30, 2008, must submit requests for reimbursement by June 6, 2008. All other division final requests for reimbursement must be received by August 22, 2008, based on actual expenditures incurred, which must have been encumbered by June 30, 2008.

 

If you have questions concerning the funds allocations or the cutoff date for expending funds, contact W. Terry Dougherty, grants administrator, via e-mail at Terry.Dougherty@doe.virginia.gov or telephone at (804) 225-3349.
