Certificates of Educational Convenience (CEC)

Beginning in FY2021, School Finance has updated the process for the collection of Certificate of Educational Convenience (CEC) data from the counties.

County Superintendents will continue to issue CECs according to their policies, but will submit the complete list for the fiscal year to School Finance one time. Please download the form below and record the CECs as they are issued. At the end of the fiscal year, completed forms should be emailed to the School Finance Inbox by June 30.
