Subject: June Payment for Early Childhood Special Education and High Need Fund

Source: Funds Management

Intended Audience: Special Education Directors, Superintendents, Financial Administrators

Date: July 13, 2010

Districts received final payments for Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) and High Need Fund (HNF) in the June payment transmittal.

Districts were notified by SELS and/or payment letters that these funds would be paid from state sources.  However, part of the supplemental appropriations to fund these programs ended up being paid with federal stabilization funds, so the descriptor on the payment transmittal may be incorrect.  Please disregard the descriptor that indicates "state" or "federal" funds.  If the revenue code begins with 53XX, the district was paid with state funds.  If the revenue code begins with 54XX, the district was paid with federal stabilization funds.  HNF payment letters will be revised and re-issued to districts with the correct funding source and amount.

Districts do NOT report these stabilization funds in the ARRA quarterly report form.
