2020-21 Adopted Budget Review
We appreciate the rapid responses to the draft Adopted Budget approval letters which allowed us to meet the statutory deadline to mail the final letters to your Board Presidents. As noted in the letters, a number of districts are projecting the need for budget reductions and over half of the districts have yet to settle collective bargaining for 2020-21.
Affordable Care Act Reporting Training
The Internal Revenue Services (IRS) has yet to release the draft 2019 Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting forms and instructions, nonetheless, it’s time to start preparing for ACA reporting. Two training dates will be scheduled at the end of October to provide an understanding of the process we use, go over the data collection spreadsheet, and timelines for preparation. If the final IRS ACA reporting forms have any material changes impacting the data collection we will conduct follow-up training.
2019-20 Unaudited Financials
All districts have submitted their 2019-2020 Unaudited actuals financial data. The data is being reviewed before certification to the CDE on or before October 15th.
Learning Continuity and Attendance Plans
District Business Services office staff are in the process of reviewing the district's 2020-21 Learning Continuity and Attendance Plans. We expect to provide draft review letters to districts on or about October 27th, with final letters issued by the statutory deadline of October 30, 2020. As always, we appreciate as quick a response as possible to ensure we meet the statutory deadline for the final letters.
