2018-19 Audit Reports and Audit Findings
Audit Reports for the prior fiscal year, including corrective action plan(s) for each finding are due to be filed with COE, the California Department of Education and the State Controller by December 16, 2019.
The district board will review and accept the annual audit, any audit findings or recommendations and any corrective action plans at a public meeting on or before January 31, 2020. We will complete our review of audit findings and issue requests for any additional information required to resolve findings in early February 2020, with responses due by March 15th.
2019-20 First Interim Budget Reports
2019-20 First Interim Budget reports are due to the COE on or before December 16, 2019. Our review will culminate in letters addressed to your Board Presidents. We will provide draft copies of the letter for your review prior to the January 15, 2020 mailing deadline.
Enrollment and unduplicated pupil count data must be certified in CALPADS Fall 1 Certification due December 20th. We have requested all Districts to notify us when the Fall 1 has been certified for your District and have further requested that data amendments be performed in 'revised' mode during the review period rather than de-certifying the data. These minor adjustments will greatly facilitate our statutory review of the data.
For the first time this year, CALPADs data will be used to enable CDE
- To meet federal reporting requirements, and to monitor whether students with disabilities (SWDs) are receiving a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment as required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
- To enable the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) and monitoring authorities to ensure certificated staff have the appropriate credentials for their assignments.
- To report, as required by recently enacted legislation, counts of incidents in which students were restrained (physically or mechanically) or secluded.
As you are aware, the SELPA office has been working closely with district staff on the transition of student data to CALPADs as the SELPA office must certify the data for the districts to complete their Fall 1 certification.
2019-20 First Period (P1) Reports of Attendance
The first period (P1) of attendance ends with the school month ending on or before December 15th. While P1 attendance (ADA) is not used to determine funding entitlements, it provides the first benchmark of changes in pupil attendance and is used to update cash flow on the principal apportionment.
