School Finance has been working with divisions across ADE this week to facilitate accurate and timely data collection for FY2019. There have been issues preventing some LEAs from submitting successfully, but most LEAs have submitted calendars and are accessing the new Calendar User Interface with no issue. In consideration to the LEAs having trouble, School Finance is relaxing the calendar deadline to 8/31/2018.
8/31/2018 is the absolute last date LEAs can modify, delete, or certify calendars. This includes correcting a calendar to pass Integrity and certifying a calendar. Therefore, 8/31/2018 should be viewed with some caution as it relates to reconciling student data. The data capture date for the Oct 1 payment is 9/11/2018, allowing little time to address issues between calendar data and student data.
Please submit and certify your calendar track(s) so that your student data may be run through Integrity while allowing sufficient time to correct errors.
