SUBJECT

Adoption of State Technology Funding Resolution, Series XVII

RATIONALE

Chapter 732, 2016 Acts of Assembly authorizes the Virginia Public School Authority to conduct an education technology grant program to focus on the establishment of a computer-based instructional and testing system for the Virginia Standards of Learning.  Grants for this purpose are awarded in the amount of $26,000 per school (as of September 30, 2012) and $100,000 for the school division.  In order to receive these funds, the Alleghany County School Board must annually adopt the “State Technology Funding Resolution” to certify compliance with the specified regulations.  The total amount for Alleghany County Public Schools from the Series XVI bonds is $230,000.

 

A copy of the funding resolution is attached for your review.  It is my recommendation that this resolution be placed on the June 19, 2017 school board agenda for approval.  Please let me know if you need additional information.
