FY 2019 Results-Based Fund Expenditure Reporting

This Hot Topic applies only to those school districts and charter districts that received FY 2019 Results-Based Funds.

In accordance with A.R.S. §15-249.08, all school districts and charter districts that receive Results-Based Fund monies are to account for the fund expenditures at the school-level.

Today, ADE School Finance published the Results-Based Fund Expenditure Report for FY 2019 (an Excel file) for the FY 2019 results-based funds eligible school districts and charter districts to report how the monies awarded in FY 2019 were spent. This report is required. If the school district or charter district received FY 2019 results-based funds and did not expend any of the FY 2019 results-based monies, this report is still required to be uploaded with a zero reported in each of the highlighted cells for the District/Charter Total Expenditures (line 1).

Please complete the report and upload the file via the School Finance File Upload (Budget/AFR) application of Common Logon no later than Friday, December 13, 2019. The file is available for download from here or the budget resources page of the School Finance website, click here.

In order to provide the most effective customer service, please direct Results-Based Funding questions in an email to the School Finance payments team inbox at [email protected].
