Why? Once per year process Update on Audit Interactive Session
How Much Do You Remember? How many $ is a regular student worth? The most frustrating error message that Christine deals with is …………. What happens if you cross-enrol a K-9 student into your school? Who claims the student in the following scenario: Joe Brown leaves Noel Booth on 28 Sep and starts at Shortreed on 3 Oct? What do we do with Homeschooled students?
Remember – Secondary Are support blocks funded? Which school should mark the student as being in a career ed program? What happens if you cross-enrol a grade 10-12 student? – Types of School – Alternate, Regular, DL, Cont Ed Are adult students funded? – Who would be classified as an adult student? – Graduated Adults
Data Quality What is it? Why is it important? Incomplete/inaccurate data wastes time; causes frustration; costs money Examples – ESL student with English as home language – Aboriginal Students need Identification AND Program
Audit Reports Schools’ Annual Timetables as at 30 September – Run and store (electronically) – Withdrawn students (Leaving between now and 30 September – print their timetables and FILE)
Schools claim only those students enrolled and ATTENDING on 30 September – Ignore absences if the student has been there and is returning – Hospital/homebound - take advice from Special Services – Students in transition should be included – Withdrawn students – where are they going and when are they starting?
Adults students can only be claimed for funding if they have met the definition of attendance as defined in the Adult Funding Policy – Any thoughts?
Each of the students claimed for Aboriginal Education supplemental funding begin receiving a program/services by 30 Sept
Aboriginal Students are provided services in addition to any other programs and services they are entitled to and provide a continuum of substantive learning experiences/support services throughout the school year
The district ensures that there is documented evidence demonstrating that additional programs and/or services have been provided
Only students that have self-identified can be reported for funding – Aboriginal Support Works will need to help you to check this
Schools ensure that Career programs are appropriately identified
All designated special needs students have a current IEP on file – New students to the district – if they have a designation advise Special Services
Ensure all documentation is appropriately dated
