The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education's school finance regulations require Commonwealth charter schools report enrollment as of February 15th of each year. This reporting represents the final claim period for fiscal year 2013 and is used to determine each school's June 30th tuition payment.
The claim form workbook, named 13febxxxx.xls where "xxxx" is the school's four digit LEA, is now available for download from the Charter School Claim Form Drop Box at www4.doemass.org. Inside each workbook users will find several tools to assist them in completing the claim form data submission. There is an instruction sheet, a FAQ (frequently asked questions) sheet, a Certification Form, as well as the main document, the claim form.
The submission deadline for the claim form is 5:00 p.m. Friday, March 1, 2012. Any charter school that fails to submit their claim form by this date and time may be subject to the withholding of their March 29, 2013 tuition payment.
Please keep in mind the following requirements when completing this critical data submission:
