News & Announcements

Friday, August 24, 2018  

This afternoon, the Department of Local Government Finance distributed information regarding amended templates for the Bus Replacement Plan, Capital Projects Plan, and the School Checklist for Budget Year 2019.   Please review this information especially if you have already adopted your 2019 CPF plan.  The information can be found on the DLGF website.

The following information was sent today in State Superintendent Jennifer McCormick’s weekly update:

Schools Selected for Sample - During the 2017 legislative session, the Indiana General Assembly passed Indiana Code 20-43-8- 13, which states "each school corporation that receives a grant under this chapter shall report to the department, in a manner prescribed by the department, the pupil count and the per-pupil cost to the school corporation for each career and technical education program in which the school corporation includes pupils in the school corporation's enrollment count under subsection (b)." This IC requires the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) to collect fiscal data from all Indiana districts receiving state CTE funding. We are working on measures for fall and spring CTE reporting to collect statewide data from every school receiving state CTE funding to meet this legislative requirement

However, due to the fact that we are preparing to enter into the 2019 legislative session, which includes the determination of the biennium state budget, we believe it is in the best interest of our schools and students to provide data regarding the average cost of CTE programs per pupil directly from our schools to the legislature. In consultation with Policy Analytics, LLC, the Indiana Department of Education has chosen a sample of 56 career centers, cooperatives, and high schools from across the state to participate in a preliminary CTE per pupil cost study. Requested participant schools for this IDOE sponsored CTE study have been contacted by the Indiana Department of Education and Policy Analytics, LLC. Results from this study will be presented to the Governor’s Workforce Cabinet CTE Action.

The Annual IASBO Foundation Golf Outing will be held on Wednesday, September 5 at the Eagle Creek Golf Club in Indianapolis (8802 West 56th Street).  The proceeds from the outing assist in the funding of the IASBO annual high school scholarships and the Annual Meeting scholarships.  The golf outing is the Foundation’s only active fund raiser.  Put September 5 down on your calendar for a fun event that assists high school seniors and your peers.  Additional information and registration procedures regarding the golf outing can be found on the IASBO web site.
