Background 2011–2012 Accounting Manual was published in January 2011. Some changes needed due to implementation of Activity 31/32 account codes. Addendum to Bulletin 004-11 was released on August 18, 2011, outlining the changes to the Accounting Manual.

GASB 54 Reporting Yes, you still need to report using GASB 54 terminology starting with 2010–2011. A tool has been developed to help districts categorize their ending fund balance. It is available on the SAFS Tools page: http://www.k12.wa.us/safs/TT/tools.asp http://www.k12.wa.us/safs/TT/tools.asp
Food Service Balance If your district makes money on its food service program (XX98 revenues exceed Program 98 expenditures), any excess money generated is Restricted Fund Balance. For now, record any excess food service program income in GL 821 Restricted for Carryover of Restricted Revenues. Additional guidance will be forthcoming, covering topics such as indirect costs.
ASB Fund Balance Previously, the question of “Where do we record ending ASB Fund Balance?” was answered with “Restricted.” UPDATE: for Spendable Fund Balance in the ASB Fund, except for amounts that have a legal Restriction or are otherwise Committed, residual fund balance in the ASB Fund may be reported as Assigned Fund Balance (GL 889).
Special Education Maintenance of Effort Districts who see an increase in their IDEA allocation from the prior year may reduce their IDEA expenditures by 50% of the increase. In 2009-10, all IDEA money from ARRA was added to each district’s IDEA allocation amount for MOE purposes. Due to this, no district’s 2010-11 IDEA allocation exceeds their 2009-10 IDEA allocation. Thus, no district will be able to utilize the 50% reduction rule for 2010-11.
