Form 09—Charter Schools Special Revenue Fund (modified accrual basis of accounting)
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.
    • CHK-FUND09-ACTIVITY will be modified to also run for actual data.
  • In the SACS2014 software, for separately reporting charter schools only:
    • Form 09 will be discontinued for all separately reporting charter schools.
    • CHK-FUND09-ACTIVITY will be modified to flag Fund 09 data for all objects.
