Regional Special Education Fiscal Training

The Special Education Finance Section will host regional trainings related to IDEA fiscal monitoring.  The trainings will cover pertinent fiscal accountability requirements related to special education finance, specific examples of these requirements, the monitoring questions used to determine compliance, and corrective actions necessary to meet IDEA fiscal compliance. 

All districts/LEAs are welcome to attend regardless of Cohort assignment and/or monitoring cycle.  However, districts/LEAs completing Self-Assessments (Cohort 3) in 2016-17 are strongly encouraged to participate in order to prepare for the upcoming monitoring.  Attendance for the districts/LEAs receiving Special Education Finance on-site visits (Cohort 2) will be mandatory.  Districts/LEAs receiving Special Education Finance on-site reviews in 2016-17 will be notified via email within the next week.  Cohort listings can be found at http://dese.mo.gov/sites/default/files/se-seap-cohort-list-aug-2015.pdf.

It is strongly encouraged that both the Special Education Director and the Bookkeeper/Finance staff attend the training together. Each participant will receive a printed copy of the Special Education Fiscal Monitoring Guide for FY17.  Breakfast and lunch are not provided. Participants will be released for lunch.  Contact Leslie Turpin with any questions at [email protected] or (573)751-7022.
