FY2014 Instructional Improvement Fund Payment 2

SAIS Is Open for FY2015!

SAIS is open and ready to accept your FY15 data!  What this means to you:

1) When you go into SAIS Online, SDDI, Student Detail Reports or any of the other SAIS applications, the default year in the fiscal year dropdown will be “2015″.  Select the appropriate year, as necessary, for the data you are working with.

2) FY 2014 SAIS data submission deadline passed on Monday (6/30/14) for brick and mortars.  AOI schools have until July 15 to submit their data.  AOIs, when submitting files for FY14, be sure to submit under “2014″ and not “2015″.

Fiscal Year 14 Closes at 5:00 PM Today!

FY14 is ending!!  Today is the last day to update FY14 student data.  All changes, submissions, uploads, etc. need to be completed by 5:00 pm today.  LEAs that need to make any adjustments to FY14 data after 5:00 pm will be required to submit a -915 for a prior year adjustment.  Please make sure your FY14 data is updated and correct by 5:00 pm today to eliminate this possibility.  Thank you and Happy FY15!


Note:  This requirement is for Brick and Mortar schools only!  AOI schools can submit student data through July 15th at 5:00 pm.

As previously posted, here is the data submission schedule for the recalculation:


Preschool FTE Integrity Check Is Here!!

The much anticipated Preschool FTE integrity check has arrived!!!


School Finance will implement Preschool FTE  Integrity Business Rules  (direct link) for the FY2014 School Recalculation which begins on July 16, 2014.  This new integrity rule will cause an integrity error for  preschool students with an FTE greater than 0.50. These students will not generate ADM for state aid funding.   Changes must be made by 5:00 pm June 30th, 2014 to eliminate the possibility of needing to correct prior year’s data (15-915 for FY2014).  If you offer preschool, please make sure your data is correct.


Notification of this change has previously been shared in our “School Finance Updates” memos (14-052, 14-048).

RESOLVED: Budget Files Are Not Currently Processing Into The System

LEAs may resume uploading budget files as the system is back online. Thank you for your patience.

The ADE IT unit is working to resolve the issue. We are asking that all LEAs suspend any budget upload attempts at this time.

Once the system issue has been resolved, we will notify the LEAs affected and update this Hot Topic. All budget files that were either rejected or display a “File Pending Validation…” message will have to be re-uploaded once the system is back online.

We apologize for any inconvenience. Please know that we are working as quickly as possible to restore the budget system.

Thank you.
