Data Push Update for June 1 Payment

While analyzing data for the first June payment, School Finance observed unusually low ADM data. Fifteen LEAs had the greatest impact from the dip in ADM. Therefore, School Finance used the dates listed below for all LEAs.

School Finance made the determination to use previous ADM figures for this month’s payment. As a result, May’s ADMS46-1, SPED 28-1, and ELLS28-1 will not align to the previously published data capture date in AzEDS.

To reconcile the 05/07/2018 ADMS46-1 report to AzEDS ADM data, pull an ADM20 from 04/24/2018.

To reconcile the 05/07/2018 SPED28-1 report to AzEDS ADM data, pull an SPED20 from 04/25/2018.

To reconcile the 05/07/2018 ELLS28-1 report to AzEDS ADM data, pull an ELL20 from 04/26/2018.
