3 FTE Overview

4 FTE-Full Time Equivalent Input into Florida Education Finance Program (FEFP) FEFP includes FTE, DCD, program weights, and other adjustments Funded is calculated during 4 survey periods. A regular school year is funded through the October and February survey period. DJJ programs receive funding through June and July as does transportation. Student for full time funding purposes = *5 hours per day (300 minutes) *1500 minutes per week (25 hours) *180 days a year (except DJJ) *.5 un-weighted FTE per semester Anything over 25 hours per week is discarded see FTE Student Detail Report. DJJ students are funded at 250 instructional days maximum.

5 FTE Programs and Groups 10 FEFP Programs Basic: 101 (K-3); 102 (4-8); 103 (9- 12) ESE Basic: 111 (K-3); 112 (4-8); 113 (9- 12) *ESOL: 130 (K-12) *Career: 300 *ESE Levels 4 & 5: *254; 255 2 FEFP Program Groups Group 1: Basic Group 2: ESOL, Career, & 254/255 *Group 2 programs are capped at the appropriated funding for the program. If a district has a total over the cap, it will be funded at 1.0 and not at the program weight.

6 2012-2013 Program Weights Basic &Basic ESE (*K-3=1.117; 4-8=1.00; 9-12=1.020) 254=3.524 255=5.044 ESOL=1.161 ) Career=.999 Weighted FTE = the FTE times the cost factor (weight) *Includes PK ESE not at 254 or 255/VPK, School Readiness, and Private Pay PK are not funded through FTE.

ESOL *Check mismatch report to verify accuracy of ESE scheduling *Be sure to make changes needed before and during FTE week

13 Reviewing FTE Reports Look at all reports a minimum of 3 times during and after FTE week: *Monday of FTE week to ensure that any edits were correct *Monday after FTE week *Monday after clean up week FTE files are frozen as of Friday of clean up week FTE amendments are needed to make changes after clean up week. ESOL Check for 11-day attendance criteria on Monday of clean-up week to have time to make needed changes. Beginning date in student course record must be before or on date certain of FTE week for students to be eligible. The principal must sign, date, and keep the FTE Totals page of the FTE Detailed Student report for potential audit purposes.

17 Other Important Points to Remember

18 ESOL 487-7840 ESOL 487-7840 Weighted Funding-- 130 Code of LY enrolled in (a ) Intensive reading, language arts, English, and English through ESOL. (b) Math, science, social studies, and computer literacy using ESOL strategies. only if -- Teachers are certified in the subject area and are working on, or have completed, ESOL training requirements. May not claim weighted funding for elective courses--music, PE, art, foreign language, etc.--even if teachers are ESOL certified or endorsed. Only teachers teaching language arts or reading to ELLs who are not ESOL certified or endorsed must be reported as out of field for ESOL. Board must approve and letters must be sent to parents of LY students-- prior to October FTE Survey. Students coded LY must be revaluated at the end of the first 3 years to see if they qualify for extended ESOL instruction and weighted funding. They must be revaluated each year thereafter… Weighted funding can only be claimed for 6 total years even if student still needs services. 7 th- year ESOL students must be coded by schools in basic program.

19 Calculating ESOL Minutes Code ESOL 130 for the amount of time student is being taught courses eligible for ESOL- weighted funding, Code Basic for remaining courses. ESE coding will override ESOL funding. Steps for correctly coding fundable ESOL courses: -- Print latest DOE listing of 130 eligible courses. --Print each LY students course schedule. --Identify eligible courses taught by eligible teachers.

20 ESE Must check to ensure that ESE students are coded correctly according to IEP and are served correctly according to IEP ESE students will not be claimed for ESE funding until data is entered in Genesis Check ESE subsystem report to correct inaccuracies Check to ensure that teachers hold correct certification

21 ESE A Matrix of Services must be completed for all ESE students. A Matrix is completed after the IEP meeting has been held and IEP has been completed. A copy of the Matrix must be placed in each students ESE folder at the school with the IEP that it represents. A copy of the Matrix and IEP must be turned in to the ESE office for scanning. For audit purposes, the school maintains the OFFCIAL COPY of the IEP and Matrix.

22 ESE Students receiving services from Hospital/Homebound during the period of time covered by the funding surveys should only be claimed by cost center 9004 (school of instruction). The school of enrollment should flag their courses as non-FTE generating while the student is being served by hospital homebound.

23 On the Job Training To receive FTE funding, time cards must be completed by students and kept on site by the school for audit purposes.

24 Dual Enrollment K-12 school of enrollment codes the courses taken at universities or community colleges. TIS has the course code needed for the classes taken. To ensure that the K-12 school has attendance records for these students, the students are required to have the professors sign a form provided by the K-12 school daily. The form must be submitted to and kept by the K-12 school for audit purposes.

25 Teacher Certification For teachers teaching out of field, the following must be completed before FTE week: 1. School Board approval ESOL 2. Notice to parents-(Keep in audit file.) This must be done each year and each semester that the teacher is out of field. Reading/language arts teachers are reported out of field for ESOL each year they teach an LY student--until they hold ESOL certification or the ESOL Endorsement. Questions regarding certification should be directed to the Human Resources Dept.
