The Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Expenditure Report (ER) for the 2007-08 school year is now available for district input through the DESE Web Applications System. The anticipated due date is September 17, but please do not submit until the district's Annual Secretary of the Board Report (ASBR) has been approved, even if it is after this date.
Once both of these applications are approved by the Division, the district will receive their first payment in the following month.
The ECSE Training Guide, ECSE Core Data Personnel Detail Worksheet, and ECSE Object & ASBR Codes are posted on the Funds Management website at:
Please note the following:
If updates are needed on Core Data Screens 18 and 20 for 2007-08, make them directly in the Core Data Screens. Beginning with 2008-09, the educator data will need to be submitted and updated through the MOSIS submission system.
If there is an error in the application on the Core Data Personnel Detail page regarding certification, please double check the individual's certifications. This may occur due to a system communication error. If everything looks in order, the district may by-pass the warning.
All ECSE expenditures must be coded in the ASBR under 2559 (ECSE Transportation) or 1280 (All Other ECSE Expenditures).
