Form 09—Charter Schools Special Revenue Fund (modified accrual basis of accounting)
Discontinue Form 09I for separately reporting charter schools. Applies to Interim periods only.

Beginning in the SACS2012 software, inactivated Fund 09 for separately reporting charter schools only, effective 2012-13, because a separately reporting charter school should report a general fund and not a special revenue fund. These changes do not apply to COEs or districts that use Fund09 to report their charter schools within their own financial statements.

  • In the SACS2012 software, for separately reporting charter schools only: Added new fatal import technical review check CHK-FUND09-ACTIVITY to flag activity in Fund 09 except objects 9791, 9793, and 9795, effective 2012-13 for budget and interim data types. For 2012-13, CDE expects to see a Fund 09 beginning fund balance and a restatement to zero out the beginning balance, by resource.
  • In the SACS2013 software, for separately reporting charter schools only:
    • Fund 09 ending fund balances reported in 2011-12 unaudited actuals will be preloaded as Fund 09 in SACS2013 for use with technical review checks, PY‑EFB=CY-BFB and CY-EFB=CY-BFB-RES.
    • Discontinue Interim Form 09I for separately reporting charter schools only.
    • Modify CHK-FUND09-ACTIVITY as follows:
      • Flag activity in Fund 09 data except objects 9791, 9793, and 9795, effective 2012-13, for actual data types only.
      • Flag activity in Fund 09 data for all objects, effective 2013-14, for budget and interim data types only.
  • In the SACS2014 software, for separately reporting charter schools only:
    • Discontinue Budget/Unaudited Actuals Form 09 for separately reporting charter schools only.
