Please be aware the next OPI ESSA Per Pupil Expenditure Workgroup meeting is scheduled for November 9th at 9:00 am. This is a webinar/conference call. Any school officials are welcome to attend the workgroup session. I would like to remind everyone the expenditure reporting for school districts will begin with the FY 2019 submitted data. All districts will have a per pupil expenditure cost reported on the report card.

As a reminder, OPI is still working with the federal government to determine which districts will be required to report the expenditure data by school code. A final resolution is expected by January 2019. If information or decisions are made before then, OPI will notify districts as soon as possible. Please note the last monthly webinar discussed this topic in more detail. This webinar is located on the website: CLICK HERE.  

If you are not part of the workgroup, but would like to become a member of workgroup or attend this meeting, please e-mail me and I will send you the meeting information. This workgoup is finalizing the calculation of the per pupil expenditure cost and developing the guidance document. The goal is for this process to be open and tranparent to all school districts. Please attend if you are interested.

Thank you.
