The April 2020 BUDG25 reports have been posted and are available for download and review. To select a specific district, please click here
Update: the FY 2020 Prop123 budget capacity estimated value was updated to equal the amount of the district’s first FY 2020 Prop123 payment times two – since the actual payment two amount is not currently available, but planned for distribution in May 2020. For reference, the first payment of the FY 2020 Prop123 can be found here
For any district that is planning an FY 2020 May budget revision, it is suggested to include the updated FY 2020 Prop123, though not required. The FY 2020 BUDG75 report to be published in late October this year will award any under-budgeted FY 2020 Prop123 budget capacity.

A grade table did not load properly to AzEDS last night triggering Integrity Rule -10008 (Grade Level Code not offered at this School) to populate for every LEA which resulted in a temporary loss of ADM. The AzEDS team is aware of the issue and actively working on a solution. We are planning on running Integrity today to resolve the errors. We will not move forward with Data Capture until we have analyzed the results and can confirm the issue is resolved. We will post an update after Integrity has run and we have an opportunity to analyze the results.
Update (2/4/2020, 4:30pm): The AzEDS team has corrected the issue causing the Integrity Rule -10008 errors. Integrity and ACE have been completed. Following the ADM analysis, the data capture and data push will occur as previously scheduled.
The School District Employee Report (SDER) On-Line Application is currently available and ready to accept employee data modifications prior to final TEI calculations. This application is accessible through Common Logon.
SDER data may be modified between February 1, 2020 and March 1, 2020. Final data modifications must be made by 4:00 p.m. Monday, March 1, 2020.
Preliminary TEI reports were made available in October of 2019 and can be accessed here. Final TEI reports will be available on or prior to March 15, 2020.
Final TEI figures may differ between the preliminary report and the final report even if your district does not modify its data, as the statewide average number of FTE Years of experience value may change due to its recalculated value for the final reports.
The SDER instructions can be found at the end of the FY2020 SDER Memo.
