This is the list of the FY2015 Small School Transportation Adjustments that were approved at the March 23, 2015 State Board of Education meeting. These adjustments will be included in the May 1, 2015 APOR.

The recently posted FY 2015 March BUDG25 report is inaccurate and will be unpublished by close of business today.
The FY 2015 DAA/CAA adjustment amounts are being recalculated statewide to be included with the April 1 APOR. This means that the current DAA/CAA reduction values from the FY 2015 March APOR55-1 were not available when the March BUDG25 was generated, causing the district Adjusted DAA Allocation to be overstated on the budget report.
At this time, no FY 2015 BUDG25 report is planned for release in March. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience this may cause.

The ADE has discovered new issues with SAIS that may be causing school districts and charter schools to receive incorrect funding. In certain circumstances, SAIS has not been properly limiting ADM within single Local Education Agencies (LEA) to 1.000, but rather has allowed it to be calculated at greater than 1.000 ADM. The ADE’s initial analysis has identified that SAIS limiting does not always function correctly. For complete details of these circumstances and steps to determine if your LEA is impacted, please see the School Finance Memo which can be found here.
ADE is in the process of completing a preliminary analysis to determine the impact and magnitude of the SAIS Limiting inconsistencies. All impacted LEAs will be notified of the analysis findings.
Please submit questions on this subject to SchoolFinance@azed.gov. An FAQ will be made available online and updated, as questions are answered.
Teacher Experience Index (TEI) for Fiscal Year 2015 has been recalculated for all school districts and TEI reports (SDER 96) are available for each district through this link. The TEI reports were created from SDER data submitted through March 2, 2015. Pursuant to A.R.S §15-941(D), and revised for Fiscal Year 2015, the teacher experience index for the budget year shall not be recalculated after March 15 unless the superintendent of public instruction determines that the school district has submitted data resulting in an overstatement of the teacher experience index for the budget year.
Please see these links for previous communication regarding this year’s schedule for SDER data submissions and TEI reports:
