The mission of the Migrant Grant is to locate all eligible migrant students residing within the regional district (Albemarle, Alleghany, Augusta, Charlottesville, Culpeper, Fluvanna, Greene, Hanover, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, Orange, Rockbridge, Staunton and Waynesboro), evaluate their individual educational needs, and offer necessary support services in support of the Divisions strategic plan.  The migrant grant is responsible for the following major programs and/or services:  after-school instruction, evening tutoring in migrant camps, and extended instruction in summer.  There is a fund balance retained by the state in the amount of $63,439.49 from FY07/08 which may be reappropriated for FY08/09.  The funds will be used for salaries, benefits, educational materials, postage, printing, staff development and telephone expenses.

 

 

Appropriation #2009062                                                                                                                                                                                    $ 20,983.50

The City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County will be conducting a Court Facility Feasibility Study to update projections of space needs for the City and County General District Courts and their clerks to determine whether the existing Levy Building can accommodate those needs.  The County intends to engage Moseley Architects, under term contract for this work.  The County’s share of this study, $9,025.50, is already appropriated within the capital improvements program and requires no additional County funding.  This request will recognize the City’s share of the study, $9,025.50, funded by revenue from the City.

 

In addition, the scope of this study was expanded to include updated projections of space needs for the City of Charlottesville Circuit Court and its clerk, and Commonwealth’s Attorney.  The cost of this portion of the study, $11,958.00, will be funded entirely by the City.

 

  

 

Appropriation #2009063                                                                                                                                                                                    $ 15,000.00   

 

            Revenue Source:            Local Revenue (Proffer)               $ 15,000.00

 

The current Northside branch library located in Albemarle Square is approximately 15,570 SF and is approximately 46% of current space standards for the service area population, or 40% of new State standards.  Space in Albemarle Square formerly occupied by Circuit Court would provide approximately 28,300 SF (about 83% of current space standards for the service area population, or 73% of new State standards).  Funding, in the amount of $15,000.00, is requested to conduct a study of the former Circuit City space to determine feasibility of the space for an enlarged Northside branch library and central administration offices.  The potential to provide the service area with a branch that is considerably closer to meeting the space standards without all-new construction costs is an opportunity of great interest to the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library.   The CIP identifies a New Northside facility that this Circuit City option could allow to be deferred and also to become less expensive.  The creation of central administration offices here would provide greater flexibility for timing of improvements at the Central branch.
