Title V, Part B, Subpart 2, Rural and Low-Income Schools Program Carryover Provisions and Reallocation Procedures


Superintendent’s Memo #306-17 announced 2017-2018 Title V, Part B, Subpart 2, Rural and Low-Income Schools (RLIS) Program federal allocations for qualifying school divisions and provided information on carryover provisions and reallocation procedures for the RLIS program.

To minimize the occurrence of unliquidated funds due to school divisions failing to expend and/or request reimbursement for the full amount of funds that they are awarded, school divisions are required to encumber 85 percent of each award year's Title V, Part B, Subpart 2, allocation by September 30 of the following year (within 15 months). School divisions are permitted to carry over up to 15 percent of their allocation for any fiscal year. The Virginia Department of Education will reallocate funds that have not been encumbered within the allotted 15-month period of each program year to other eligible school divisions according to the procedures provided in Attachment A.

Questions may be directed to Latonia Anderson, Title I/V Specialist, Office of Program Administration and Accountability, at Latonia.Anderson@doe.virginia.gov: Email link. or (804) 225-2907.
