Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, Superintendents, Financial Personnel
Date: May 27, 2011
The FY11 ECSE ARRA Final Expenditure Report (FER) is now open for data entry. While the ECSE ARRA FER is not due until September 30, 2011, districts may submit the FER anytime before the due date. However, please keep in mind that once an FER is created, the district will not be able to amend their current year (2010-11) ECSE ARRA budget application or make any additional payment requests. Therefore, districts should ensure all ECSE ARRA funds are budgeted and submit payment requests for all expended ECSE ARRA funds before creating an FER.
All ECSE ARRA funds must be expended by September 30, 2011, and accounted for on the FY11 ECSE ARRA FER. Remember, any construction, renovation, and bus/vehicle purchases must be prior approved by the Division. To request prior approval to use ECSE ARRA funds for a capital outlay purchase, please complete the ECSE ARRA Capital Outlay Purchase Request Form located at http://dese.mo.gov/divspeced/Finance/RecoveryReinvestmentActARRA.htm.
