INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

 

SUBJECT:

Fiscal Year 2008 Career and Technical Education Entitlements (State Funds)

 

The fiscal year 2008 state entitlements for career and technical education for each school division, including regional center entitlements, are contained in Attachment A. Regional center entitlements will be paid directly to each center's fiscal agent. The amounts contained in Attachment A will be paid to school divisions on April 30, 2008, by electronic funds transfer.

 

State funds distributed to eligible school divisions are based upon actual expenditures from the prior fiscal year and the total funds appropriated by the General Assembly for occupational preparation and adult occupational programs. To determine each school division's fiscal year 2008 allocation for occupational preparation and adult occupational programs, state funding is divided by the total school year 2006-2007 expenditures (both state and local funds) to determine the reimbursement percentage for each program. For fiscal year 2008, it has been determined that each eligible school division can be reimbursed for 26.28 percent of its school year 2006-2007 occupational preparation expenditures and for 26.60 percent of its school year 2006-2007 adult occupational program expenditures. Those school divisions that did not operate these programs in school year 2006-2007 and did not record any local expenditures, will not receive any state reimbursement in fiscal year 2008.

 

Questions concerning the state entitlements may be addressed to W. Terry Dougherty, grants administrator, via e-mail at Terry.Dougherty@doe.virginia.gov or telephone at (804) 225-3349.
