School Finance Welcomes Monica Paz!

Monica has joined us as an Account Analyst, helping our schools with their student, staff and transportation data.  You may have met her at an ASCUS meeting or in your interactions with some of the schools. 

We are so happy to have her as a part of our team!

 Here’s what she has to say…

I am excited to join the ADE School Finance team and look forward to working with my schools. I was born in Morenci, AZ but grew up in Tucson. I have lived in the Phoenix area for about ten years; some of my experiences include working at charter high schools in Tempe and Phoenix. I hope that my background working in the field will help me to provide my LEAs with genuine customer service. It is my top priority to provide knowledgeable solutions and be a good resource for my contacts.

When I am not dedicated to my work I enjoy time off with my husband and our two young children, who give me more reasons to enjoy life, laugh a lot and consume large amounts of coffee! Once again, I am thrilled to join the ADE team and look forward to interacting with my schools. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions, concerns or just want to introduce yourself.

 

Please join us in welcoming Monica!  To see if Monica is your new analyst, please check out our LEA Account Analyst list and search for your LEA.

February Aggregation Begins February 4 – Get data in by Feb. 3 @ 5pm

February’s monthly processing begins on Tuesday, February 4, 2014 and will include data submitted to SAIS through 5pm on Monday, Feb. 3.  For those LEAs whose schools have all reached 100th day by February 3, 2014, 100th day ADM will be calculated and available by February 17, 2014.  Otherwise, 40th day ADM will be available on this date.  Please check the IT Bulletin Board for updates stating the data has completed processing.  Only at that time can you check your ADMS, SPED and ELL 75 reports and expect to see complete ADM results.
 
For charters, the ADMS40 series reports generated this month will be the basis for your March 3, 2014 state aid disbursement.
 
Please keep in mind that, as reported previously, the date in which your LEA is eligible for your 40th day and 100th day ADM to be calculated has changed this year.  It is now on the day in which all of the schools within the LEA have reached the 40th day (or 100th day) of school and is subject to the aggregation processing schedule.  Please see this HOT TOPICS posting for more information.
