Special Education Expense Coding
  • Project Number
  • The key to using the correct project code is
  • understanding that the project code can
    identify very important information
    including
  • - whether the expense is categorical
    aid-eligible
  • - the source of the funding (local, state, or
    federal dollars)
  • - if it was a package program (other dist,
    CESA, CCDEB)
  • - if its a grant, who is the grant-holder
  • .all critical information we need to compute
    categorical aid.

68
Project 011-Aidable Expense
  • Use this project on all original object 100
    900 expenditures when
  • the LEA is using only local dollars to fund the
    expenditure (no grant money reimbursement)
  • the expenditure is directly state special
    education categorically aidable
  • The school district incurs salary benefit

Adjusted Head Count
  • The adjusted head count must be converted to
    full-time equivalency (fte) for both revenue
    limits and equalization aid.
  • Incorrect data in the internet-based report will
    cause the fte for both revenue limits and
    equalization aid to be inaccurate. Data must be
    revised on-line.

On-Line FTE Reports
Find your district in the Finance Team Reporting
Portal. http//dpi.wi.gov/sfs/index.html
101
On-Line FTE Reports
FTE Reports for both Equalization Aid and Revenue
Limits are on website.
102
Summer School FTE
  • Summer School starts the school year
  • An Excel worksheet is available to calculate your
    Summer School FTE.
  • http//dpi.wi.gov/sfs/summ_sch.html
  • Keep the Excel spreadsheet, as your auditor may
    need to review the information used to calculate
    your summer school fte. (Auditor will check fees.
    See link on green scan bar for discussion.)

103
Summer School
  • The data on the front page of the Excel worksheet
    is reported to DPI on-line at the conclusion of
    summer school and is due in September.
  • The summer school report is one of the few
    reports that ask for an fte count as opposed to a
    head count.

104
Youth Challenge Academy
  • Wisconsin National Guard Challenge Academy is a
    residential program committed to improving the
    quality of life for 16 to 18 year old at-risk
    teens.
  • School districts with cadets must contribute a
    portion of the costs of students enrolled in the
    Challenge Academy from their district.
  • 06-07 district cost was 7,836. 07-08 will be
    available shortly. The Academy provides the cost
    number.

105
Youth Challenge Academy
  • State statute allows the school district to count
    the student, for revenue limit and equalization
    aid purposes. The Youth Challenge Academy on-line
    report will assure that proper membership credit
    is given to each district.
  • Districts report students in both September and
    January
  • Resources

106
FTE for Revenue Limit Purposes
  • FTE generated from the PI-1563 pupil count report
    from September Count only
  • FTE generated from the September Youth Challenge
    Academy Report
  • 40 of FTE identified in the Summer School FTE
    report

107
FTE for Equalization Aid Purposes
  • FTE generated from the PI-1563 pupil count report
    from September January pupil count reports.
  • FTE generated from the September January Youth
    Challenge Academy Reports
  • 100 of the FTE identified in the Summer School
    FTE report
  • Adjustment for Part-time Private or Home-based
    Students
  • Adjustment for certain foster/group home
    students.

108
June Census
  • All districts must report the number of residents
    that are at least 4 years old but not yet 21.
  • HEAD COUNT not an FTE
  • Ages 4-13 if in a K-8 district
  • Ages 14-20 if in a high school district

109
June Census
  • Per 120.18 Wisconsin Statutes - 2 methods
    available to calculate the census head count
  • Conduct a Physical Census on June 30th -
    120.18(1)(a)1
  • Generate a number based on a mathematical
    calculation - 120.18(1)(a)2.

110
June Census Why?
  • The headcount entered into the census report is
    used to calculate the amount of common school
    fund (library) aid the district is to receive.
  • The money the district receives should be spent
    within the same fiscal year. An aid estimate is
    given in January and paid in May.

Revenue Limit Definition
  • The revenue limit is a limit (or control) on the
    revenue a school district is entitled to receive
    from
  • 1.) General State Aid
  • (Equalization, Integration Aids,
  • Special Adjustment Aid)
  • 2.) Local Levies (10, 38, 41)
  • 3.) State Computer Aid
  • It is not an expenditure control or spending
    limit.

114
Revenue Limit
  • The Revenue Limit controls the following
    revenues
  • General Aid (Equalization Aid, for most
    districts)
  • Computer Aid
  • General Fund (Fund 10), Non-Referendum Debt
  • (Fund 38) Capital Projects (Fund 41) Levies
  • The Revenue Limit does not control the following
    revenues
  • School Fees
  • Categorical Aids (Library Aid, Transportation
    Aid, etc.)
  • State and Federal Grants
  • Gate Receipts
  • Donations
  • Referendum Debt (Fund 39)
  • Community Service Fund (Fund 80) Levies

115
Revenue Limit
  • Districts typically develop an estimate of their
    new-year revenue limit by the end of January in
    any given budget year.
  • This preliminary revenue picture, together with
    salary and other local expenditure and revenue
    budget estimates, serves as a guide for the
    district as it moves through budget development.
  • The process culminates in the fall of each year
    after districts receive the 3rd Friday in
    September FTE Count and the DPI October 15th
    General Aid Certification, allowing them to set
    the levy, send tax bills, and report levy amounts
    to DPI.

Step 1 Summary
Lines 1-3
Base Revenue Per Member
124
Step 2 Calculate a New Revenue per Member Line
4A
Each year, under current law, districts are
allowed to add in a per-pupil increase
(inflationary) at this point in the
computation. Computed by using the March to March
CPI-U, the dollar increase for the 2007-08 year
is 264.12. This number is used by all districts.
Increase to be used in the 08-09 Revenue Limit
computation will not be known until mid-April,
2008 which is after March 31, 2008 and after
the Department of Revenue certified the increase
to DPI. SFS will post the number on the internet
when its available.
125
Step 2 Calculate a New Revenue per Member Lines
4B C
Also under current law, districts having low
revenue (less than a State-determined per-pupil
amount) AFTER Lines 3 and 4A are summed are
allowed to increase their per-pupil revenue limit
amount to reach this specified amount. For the
2007-08 school year, the Legislature had approved
8,700 for this amount. Line 4B, Low Revenue
Increase, will automatically pre-fill if your
district has low revenue. You dont need to enter
anything in the spreadsheet to get this extra
amount, if you qualify. If your district
participates in a CCDEB, please call the Finance
Team for further instructions for Line 4C.

Step 2 Calculate a New Revenue per MemberLine 5
Line 5 is the sum of Lines 3 and 4

  • Line 7 is Line 5 multiplied by Line 6.

But, wait, 8,700 x 759 6,603,300 - NOT
6,627,600! A new provision in the 07-09
Biennial budget allows districts to use Line 1 if
Line 5 multiplied by Line 6 is less than the Line
1 amount.
130
Step 2 SummaryLines 4-7
Calculate a New Revenue per Member
131
Step 3 Determine Allowable ExemptionsLines 8-11
  • Exemptions to the Revenue Limit allow districts
    to levy additional amounts up and above the
    amount generated by the computation up to this
    point.
  • Line 8 tracks Recurring Exemptions.
  • Line 10 tracks Non-Recurring Exemptions.
  • Its important to understand the distinction
    between the two.

132
Step 3 Determine Allowable Exemptions
Lines 8-11
  • Recurring Exemptions (Lines 8A-E) are
    base-building that is, if the district taxes
    for any of this additional authority, the levy
    amount is automatically included in the
    succeeding years base.
  • Any unused Recurring authority is eligible
  • for 100 carryover into the next year.

133
Transfer of Service
  • What Transfer of Service is
  • a recurring exemption to the revenue limit
  • based on WI Stat. 121.91(4)(a)
  • an increase on the local tax levy

134
Transfer of Service
  • What Transfer of Service does
  • helps the district cover unexpected costs for
    incoming Spec Ed/ESL (English as a Second
    Language) transfers
  • helps the district cover the cost of new
    operation expenses that were once provided by
    another municipality

135
Transfer of Service
  • What Transfer of Service is not
  • a payment from the State
  • a payment from another school district

136
Transfer of Service
  • Forms and instructions can be found at
  • http//dpi.wi.gov/sfs/transerv.html
  • (Look for an online application later this
    spring. Districts using the online application
  • will have a 1 month extension of the due date
    from July to August.)

137
Step 3 Determine Allowable ExemptionsLines 8-11
  • Non-Recurring Exemptions (Lines 10A-C) are not
    base-building that is, if a district taxes for
    any of these exemptions, the amount is not
    included in the succeeding years base.
  • In addition, any unused Non-Recurring authority
    is not eligible for carryover in the next year
    districts have one, and only one opportunity to
    use Non-Recurring exemptions.

138
Step 3 Determine Allowable ExemptionsLines 8-11
  • Line 11 is the final Revenue Limit With All
  • Exemptions for your district.
  • This is the total revenue your district can
    receive from the combination of property tax from
    Funds 10, 38, and 41, State General Aid
    (Equalization, Special Adjustment, and
    Integration Aids) and State Computer Aid.

Comparing Line 11from Year to Year
  • Line 11 represents the total amount of resource
    your district will get from Property Tax, State
    Aid, and Computer Aid. (about 70-90 of total
    revenues for most districts).
  • For budgeting purposes, its very important to
    compare this Line 11 with the previous years
    Line 11. Major decreases in Line 11 from year to
    year can have serious implications for your
    budget.

Computer Aid
Computer Aid is based on the total levy, but, at
this point in the computation, we dont have
total levy yet. Calls for a strategy on how to
get the limited portion right.
147
StrategyLine 14
  • First, type in the amounts you intend to levy for
    Funds 38 and 41 (lines 14B 14C, respectively).
  • Then, enter into line 14A the difference between
    line 13 and the sum of lines 14B C.
  • By doing this, you have levied to your maximum.
    Note that districts may choose to levy less than
    the maximum.
  • Remember Line 14 cannot exceed Line 13 ! If it
    does, you must reduce something in Line 14 (or,
    remain in a penalty situation).

148
Non-Controlled AmountsLine 15
Enter anticipated levy amounts into Lines 15
A,B, C.
149
Computer AidLine 17
Once you have entered all of the levy amounts on
Lines 14 15, the spreadsheet automatically
calculates Computer Aid on Line 17. You must
enter property values in Line 17 for the
calculation to work properly. Computer Aid is
based on property values and total levy. The
Department of Revenue certified the 2007 Property
Values on October 1, 2007, so an estimate is used
until the certification arrives.
150
Computer AidLine 17
  • Its actually a Property Tax Exemption for
    Business Computers.
  • Instead of receiving property taxes for this
    property, districts receive an aid payment from
    the Department of Revenue (DOR) to make up the
    loss in value.
  • Computer value is certified by the DOR along with
    the Tax Apportionment values in October.
    Districts use this value in their Revenue Limit
    computation to determine the Computer Aid amount.
  • Computer Aid must be considered in the context
    of revenue limit calculation because it replaces
    a portion of a districts allowable tax levy.

151
Fund 10 LevyLine 18
  • Once all your numbers are entered into the
    spreadsheet, Line 18 (NOT Line 14A) will be the
    amount of your Fund 10 Levy.

152
Total All Fund Levy Line 19
  • Line 19 is the sum of all levies from all funds
  • (line 18 line 15). Computer aid is not
    included here.
  • Line 19 is the levy to be apportioned to
    municipalities and must equal the total amounts
    on the PI-401.

Budget Strategy for Long Term Debt
The Fall, 2008 levy should be enough to cover
your debt payments due in the Spring of 2009 and
Fall of 2009. (calendar year) The 2008-09
Budget Report should reflect the amount of your
debt payments you will pay in the Fall of 2008
and Spring of 2009. (fiscal year) Make sure
you levy enough money to cover your long-term
debt payments!

Equalization AidDetour
160
Equalization Aid
  • Why do you need to know how to calculate aid when
    DPI calculates it for you?
  • Because you will be asked by your board members,
    constituents and the media.
  • So you can figure out why your aid has changed
    AND explain why.
  • Because you may want to do estimates and what
    ifs
