In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision. --Dalai Lama
The end of summer always seems to be the most hectic time of year in the business of education, for Carl Perkins there is always the traffic jam of closing out one fiscal years' claims while working to approve the next years' applications.
This year there is another addition our puzzle of time management, a federal monitoring visit focused on the state's Perkins initiative. The following time line is what the Federal Legislation office is working toward achieving over the next 5- 6 weeks:
August 18 - September 5: Closing out FY14 claims
September 8 - September 19: Federal Monitoring Visit Preparation
September 22 - September 26: Federal Monitoring Visit
September 29 - October 3: Federal Monitoring Visit Review
With the schedule above set in stone, the earliest that the Federal Legislation Assistance Division will get to approving any FY15 Carl Perkins Applications is October 6th. We realize that this is a later date than you are accustom to so if you have any questions please give us a call.
As in years past if you are continuing to fund a salaried position those expenditures are pre-approved.
We apologize for any delay this may cause and we appreciate your patience in this matter.
As always if we can be of any assistance please let us know!
