Hb1 accomplishments and challenges


  • Open Enrollment bridges both years

    • 2009 – 2010 Accomplishment, now electronic submission

    • 2010 – 2011 Challenge, to monitor and double check

Open enrollment


  • How it works: EMIS Year end “N” report

  • How to prepare

    • Notify resident district

    • Monitor Flow report

    • Review EMIS reports

  • Double Check

    • Review year end report and communicate with other district

  • OE Payment

    • Adjustment in #2 August

    • Follows business rules

Improvements underway for new open enrollment system


  • As with most new payment adjustment systems, the true test comes when a payment is processed. The new open enrollment system (which adjusts for those students who are attending schools other than their regularly assigned buildings) was no exception. We have received numerous calls and emails indicating there are errors in the calculation of the adjustment and we have been drilling down and digging into the data to understand what has happened. As we continue that process, we will not be updating the FY2011 open enrollment adjustments until we are comfortable with the results.

Common issues


  • The career-technical education (CTE) adjustments were not included in the August #2 payment. Open enrollment CTE adjustments have always been done separately from the regular education adjustments

  • The student FTE is calculated based on the number of reported session days for the building the student attended. A number of districts did not correctly report session days which has resulted in a reduced FTE

Common issues cont d


  • The process of using the building profile information for the number of days in session was in error. This resulted in the days in session defaulting to 178 days for a number of buildings, which led to calculated FTEs appearing lower than they should have been.

  • It appears that the percent of time a student spent in a postsecondary enrollment option (PSEO) program was not incorporated into the FTE calculation, resulting in a reduced FTE for students attending PSEO programs.

  • It also appears there may be issues with the concurrent enrollment checks that incorrectly eliminated some students from the payment calculations
