Subject: Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Expenditure Reports
Source: Linda Sneller, Director, Funds Management

Intended Audience: Special Education Administrators, Superintendents, Business/Finance Directors

Date: August 24, 2007

The Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) Expenditure Report (ER) for the 2006-07 school year is now available for district use with a due date of September 17. Districts who submit an approvable ER by the due date will receive their first payment in October.

The ECSE ER Instructions, ECSE Core Data Personnel Detail Worksheet, and ECSE Object & ASBR Codes have been revised and posted on our web site which is located at the following link:  http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/ecseindex.html.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

1. ECSE expenditures must be aligned with data in the Annual Secretary of the Board Report (ASBR). Therefore, all ECSE expenditures must be coded using the revenue codes of 2559 for transportation and 1280 for all other ECSE expenditures.

2. Core Data (October Cycle - Screens 18/20): It is important for districts to use the correct Core Data codes and salary amounts when entering ECSE personnel. Districts may review the ECSE Core Data Personnel Detail Worksheet to receive the correct course codes, position codes, delivery system codes, grade levels, and program codes.

3. Districts will not be able to enter the amount of leases, lease purchases or purchases for real estate, buses, or office equipment into their ECSE ER. Copies of all leases, lease purchases or purchases for real estate, buses, or office equipment must be submitted to the Funds Management Section of the Division of Special Education, attention Sandy Kliethermes (fax 573-526-5946). Upon approval, DESE will enter the approved amount into your ER.

4. Career Ladder: ECSE will not reimburse districts for Career Ladder.

5. In an effort to improve the ECSE Expenditure Report, the following revisions have been made: the secretary salary feeds into object code 6150; substitute teacher salaries feeds into object code 6110; the adaptive P.E. position code has been changed to '60'; some staff positions were added (see ECSE Core Data Personnel Detail Worksheet posted on the above website); cells for benefits were added for substitute teachers, substitute paraprofessionals, and ESY positions; the size of the comment box has been increased; and, the program maintenance amount for supplies is no longer automatically entered on the supply page - see page 32 in the Instructional Manual listed on the above website for complete details.
