Annual Cycles All reports for the current school year are based on budgeted projections from your F January the projections are adjusted to year-to-date actual for S-275 and P-223.

This has revised the rates for highly capable, bilingual, LAP and transportation. Account Truancy Allocation - The preliminary truancy allocation is paid based on $90 per petition. This rate is based on a projected estimate of total petitions. The rate will be adjusted based on total petitions in the June apportionment payment. Petitions are from Form SPI 1302C received by April 19, Final claims must be received by June 14, 2006 to receive payment. For more information see Bulletin No School Apportionment and Financial Services dated February 14, Accounts 5300 and 5329 – Emergency Impact Aid - Quarter 2 hurricane relief program payments are included. Payments for special education students are in account 5329.
Next Review the 1197 Report The 1197 report summarizes the payments to be made to your district this month. Use this to: –Determine whether you are getting all your state program funding. –Determine whether your federal dollars are being paid timely.
Report 1197 Summary report of apportionment payments. Displays annual allotment, adjustment, amount paid year-to-date, allocation for current month.
Walking Through the 1197 Column A shows what the current annual funding calculation or award is.
Walking Through the 1197 What are the amounts in column B and where the heck do they come from??? Audit or district requested adjustments for prior years. Recovery or revision to allocation from prior year in January. For federal revenues, 6XXX series accounts, the amount is what was paid this school year on prior year grants.
Walking Through the 1197 Column C – Left side shows the payment percentage that is payable Year to Date based upon Column A Plus the amount in column B. Column C – Right side shows how much that will equate to. Column D shows the amount previously paid. Column E is the difference between column D and C and the amount you will receive.
How Is this report useful? Manage your cash flow: If you are not receiving payment on Highly capable, Bilingual or LAP your program approval has not been completed. Your status may be checked on iGRANST. If you are not receiving payments on federal grants ensure that reimbursement request are being processed and submitted to OSPI timely.

K-4 Ratio Maximize Your Funding If your reports show you are not at the 53.2/1,000 for your K-4 you are not receiving the full funding available to you. Consider selecting another month for enrollment. Review staff coding on the S-275.
F-780 Calculating your districts levy
Report F-780 (Levy Authority and Estimated LEA) Report calculates a districts: –Levy Base –Levy Authority –Maximum Local Effort Assistance Inputs: –Districts prior year actual as of August and its F-195 revenues.
Per Pupil Inflator From Biennial Appropriations Act Increases levy base by inflation factor
Report F-780 (Maximum LEA) State matching available in each school year
Report F-780 (Transfers)
Report F-780 (Adjusted Assessed Valuation)
Timely Adjustments – Part I Adjustments submitted after August are not made on your apportionment reports until January as a prior year adjustment. Your levy base must be calculated by SAFS on a timely basis, September, to meet county requirements. We provide the calculation in the September reports, and a final Levy lid calculation to the county in October
Timely Adjustments – Part II In determination of your Levy lid, our rules require us to user Total Guaranteed Entitlement, on line 14 on the 1191 as of August 31. Adjustments made to prior year reports do not factor into the current years Total Guaranteed Entitlement and are therefor not included in your levy base in the subsequent year. Conclusion: Do not wait until the fall to make corrections to your staff mix or to change enrollment reported, such as summer school.
