DUAB RELEASES FISCAL INDICATORS

On December 31, 2018, the Distressed Unit Appeals Board released the School Corporation Fiscal Indicators.  The indicators for all Indiana public school corporations can be accessed at https://www.in.gov/duab/2377.htm.

 

Indiana ASBO thanks Courtney Schaafsma, DUAB Executive Director, and the members of the committee for their work on the indicators.  Specifically, IASBO thanks Dave Holt for representing Indiana ASBO on the committee and Melissa Ambre for representing the DOE on the committee.

 

The notice from DUAB states the following:

 

“Pursuant to Indiana Code 20-19-7, the School Corporation Fiscal and Qualitative Indicators Committee (“Committee”) was established in 2018 to determine fiscal and qualitative indicators to be used for evaluating the financial condition of school corporations and the presentation of the identified indicators in an Internet dashboard format. The Committee presented its recommended indicators to the State Budget Committee earlier this year.

 

The Indicators will be updated annually as new financial information becomes available. Links to supporting documentation, including instructions on how to use the indicators and downloadable data, are available here: https://www.in.gov/duab/2377.htm
