CSF Payment 9 Correction Notice

The CSF payment 9 report dated 3/27/2014 contains an incorrect Per Pupil Amount, $401.00.  $401 is in error, it should be $310. This has to do with a refresh of the CSF system and will be resolved in time for CSF payment 10, to be made in April.

We apologize for the confusion and thank you for your patience and understanding on this matter.
