Title V, Part A provides formula grants to State and local education agencies and is designed to increase the academic achievement of, and improve the quality of education for, all students.  Excess funds for personnel and benefits were transferred so that non-fiction materials in SOL subject areas could be purchased for the library at Walton Middle School.  This transfer and subsequent purchase caused expenditures to exceed the appropriation for FY05/06.
