a Consolidated Application for Federal Funds Beginning July 1, 1996
The Virginia Department of Education is planning a series of meetings around the State during the last week of March for those school divisions that intend to submit a Consolidated Application for federal funding beginning July 1, 1996. The following topics will be discussed: a. A review of the components of the application; b. A suggested model or process for developing the application. c. DOE procedures for technical support and review of the application. The meetings will be held during the week of March 25-29, 1996. Before the meetings are scheduled, please indicate your division's interest in developing a Consolidated Local Application. Our intention is to make the meetings convenient to attend by convening them as close to the interested school divisions as possible. Please return the enclosed form by Friday, March 15, 1996 to express your interest in sending representatives from your school division to one of the training meetings. Because of the short turn-a-around time, you may wish to fax or to call the Department to indicate your interest. The fax and phone information is on the enclosed form. School divisions may wish to send a team with representatives from: (1) the federal programs to be included in consolidation, (2) any state or local programs with which the federal programs will be coordinating, and (3) Key Instructional Leaders who may be involved in leading or supervising the local Consolidated Application process.
