LEAs that are new charters, have new sites or new grade approvals, or are working with new private day schools are having issues reporting data to FY2020 AzEDS. To support those challenges in AzEDS, School Finance intends to mimic the process we used for payment 1.
The deadline in AzEDS is still Tuesday, August 13th. On Wednesday, we will start to analyze current year AzEDS data to make the determination of the source for payment 2 for each LEA as follows:
- For districts, if FY2020 AzEDS ADM and SPED are within 10% of FY2019, then we intend to use FY2020 AzEDS as the basis for payment 2.
- For charters, if FY2020 AzEDS ADM and SPED are within 10% of FY2019 or FY2020 Estimated Counts, then we intend to use FY2020 AzEDS as the basis for payment 2.
- There are 4 new charters that did not sign their contracts in time for payment 1, and we will contact them separately.
We will publish our findings and intended data sources for payment 2 on Thursday, August 15th. Charter Estimated Counts will not be opened again in FY2020.
This Hot Topic Post was also emailed directly to some contacts. To get on this mailing list:
Since FY2019 School Finance communications are sent to contacts as reported as part of the budget submissions. This communication was sent to business managers and AzEDS data coordinators in the FY2020 budgets.
