Note from KDE - School Report Card Finance Domain now open for review
The School Report Card Finance Domain is now open. Districts will be required to validate/approve district-level financial data entered by the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) and calculate/enter school-level spending per student data.
This year, districts have the option to enter a financial narrative to be displayed on the school report card. KDE strongly encourages districts to create a narrative. The 400-character narrative will be displayed on the district’s financial transparency page under the header: “A message from the superintendent.” This narrative will give parents, community members and researchers a better understanding of the district’s financial picture that cannot be gathered by looking at the data alone.
Finance officers were provided guidance on calculating spending per student data last week, which also can be found on the KDE’s School Report Card resources website. Additional guidance on entering the data and narrative will be provided to finance officers once the site opens for data collection. Data entry must be completed by April 27.
