SUBJECT: Data Collection: Uses of At-Risk Funding in Fiscal Year 2017 - DUE DATE: December 9, 2016

Item 139 of the 2016 Appropriation Act (Chapter 780) contains a new reporting requirement for state funding attached to programs in support of students who are educationally at-risk (i.e., At-Risk Add-on funding).  Each school division is required to report the uses of increased At-Risk funds in fiscal year 2017 above the levels provided in fiscal year 2016, as well as the uses of the base levels of these funds.  Base level funding is equivalent to the state funding provided to school divisions in fiscal year 2016.  The specific reporting requirement in the appropriation act is as follows:

This data collection should be completed via a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, which is included within this memo as Attachment A.  Upon completion of this data collection, the file should be submitted to the Budget Office by email at doebudgetoffice@doe.virginia.gov.  Submissions must be sent to the Budget Office by December 9, 2016.

Attachment A provides a breakdown of the fiscal year 2016 base level funding and the fiscal year 2017 amounts in addition to the fiscal year 2016 funding.

Instructions for completing the data collection are included within Attachment A.

If you have questions about this reporting requirement, please contact the Budget Office at (804) 225-2025.
