FY2016 Feb BUDG25 Reports Posted (DAA note)

The FY 2016 February BUDG25 reports are posted and the Adjusted DAA includes the final DAA reductions.  Disregard the DAA adjustment and Total DAA Allocation on page 5 of the currently posted APOR 55-1 (run date 1/21/2016)

There was a quirk in the DAA calculations on the APOR 55-1. This will be corrected on the March 1st payment, as it was too late to correct the February payment.  HOWEVER, preliminary March APOR 55-1 were ran but not posted in order that the Budget Capacity on the February BUDG25 accurately reflects the adjusted DAA for the district

The FY 2016 BUDG25 reports have been updated to include for values from the FY 2015 BUDG75 reports, as posted on 11/9/2015, with the exception of any FY 2015 over expenditure(s). Any FY 2015 fund over-expenditure amount(s) will not be reflected on the FY 2016 BUDG25 until January.

To Revise or Not to Revise by December 15th

In direct follow-up to the BUDG25 letters that were published October 26, 2015, if the district is still over budgeted or has become over budgeted in either M&O and/or Unrestricted by 1% of the GBL (excluding capacity attributed to the K-3 Reading Add-On not being calculated in the district’s RCL), then a December 15th revision is required. However, if the November FY 2016 BUDG25 report now indicates that the district is no longer over budgeted in either or both funds by 1% of the GBL then a December 15th revision is not required.

Budget System File Upload Alert

Budget System File Upload Alert

The Budget system has been experiencing Technical Difficulties since yesterday around noon and files are not processing into the system.  Because of the heavy demands on the system yesterday, we anticipated it would resolve itself last night – it didn’t. The ADE IT Support group is working on the problem and we are hoping to have it resolved soon.

For those LEAs that submitted revised files; we will process those request after the system problem is resolved.

When you uploaded the file you should have gotten an automated response that included the date the files were uploaded.  If someone requests additional documentation beyond this hot top of the ADE system problem, please email the SF Budget Team at SFBudgetTeam@azed.gov.

If you uploaded a file and the status is “File Pending Validation…”  there may be a slight possibility that you will need to re-upload the file once the system is back online.

FY 2016 September BUDG25 Reports Are Posted

The FY 2016 September BUDG25 reports are posted and include values from the September 1, 2015 APOR and any FY 2016 budget revisions successfully uploaded and processed as of August 27th. To download and review a specific entity BUDG25 report, make the district name selection after clicking here.

Common Reasons for RCL Variance

  1. K-3 Reading count is not being paid – see district’s most recent FY 2016 APOR55-1, page 1, for the K-3 Reading count line item under the Add-Ons section of the APOR report. If no K-3 Reading weighted student count has been calculated, then School Finance has not yet been notified that the district is eligible for K-3 Reading. Any questions about the district’s K-3 Reading eligibility for FY 2016 payment should be addressed to the reading program contact at the State Board of Education, Sabrina Vazquez at Sabrina.Vazquez@azsbe.az.gov
  2. The district built its budget using a student count in the FY 2016 budget worksheets that is different than the actual student counts for payment. To reconcile, compare the student counts used by the district for FY 2016 Worksheet B with counts from the district’s most recent FY 2016 APOR 55-1. Any questions about student counts should be addressed to the district’s assigned School Finance account analyst. Note: the account analyst assigned to your LEA may have changed recently, please click here for an updated listing.

Friendly Budget Reminders

♦Budget Reports are updated monthly and usually within a week following any scheduled equalization payment. It is recommended that the district download its budget report, and review for any discrepancy, for as soon as the report is available.

♦Email any budget-related questions, budget concerns, or requests for budget assistance to sfbudgetteam@azed.gov.

Thank you and best wishes for much success in this new fiscal year!
