The fiscal year 2011 state entitlements for Career and Technical Education (CTE) occupational preparation and adult education for each school division, including regional center entitlements, are identified in Attachment A. The regional center entitlements will be paid directly to each center’s fiscal agent. The amounts identified in Attachment A will be paid to school divisions in one payment on June 30, 2011, 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 CTE occupational preparation and adult education programs. To determine each school division’s fiscal year 2011 allocation for CTE occupational preparation and adult education programs, state funding is divided by the total school year 2009-2010 expenditures (both state and local funds) to determine the reimbursement percentage for each program.
For fiscal year 2011, it has been determined that each eligible school division can be reimbursed for 27.75 percent of its school year 2009-2010 CTE occupational preparation expenditures and for 29.86 percent of its school year 2009-2010 CTE adult education program expenditures. Those school divisions that did not operate these programs in school year 2009-2010 and did not record any local expenditures, will not receive any state reimbursement in fiscal year 2011.
If you have questions concerning the state entitlements, please contact W. Terry Dougherty, grants administrator, at Terry.Dougherty@doe.virginia.gov or by telephone at (804) 225-3349.
