Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)


FAQs about the 2005-06 Principal Apportionment Attendance, Revenue, and Tax Software:

  1. After importing a district certified file containing Necessary Small Elementary School data (also applies to Necessary Small High School and New Necessary Small Continuation data), why does the Last Edit Check Date column on the bottom grid of the main screen not have a date listed? Will I have to re-validate (check/save) the data before exporting to CDE?

    Answer: The Last Edit Check Date is automatically cleared within the software after Necessary Small School data has been imported. The data will have to be re-validated (edit check process) by pressing the Check/Save button on the entry screen. If the data are not re-validated, data will not be exported.

  2. Do I need to answer the following questions listed on the Attendance Charter School Block Grant - Supplemental Instructional Hours tab, even if I do not have Supplemental Instructional Hours to report?
    - Did the charter school cease operation during the current fiscal year?
    - Is this charter school in its First Year of Operation?

    Answer: Yes. Even if you do not have any Supplemental Instructional Hours to report for your charter school, you must answer Yes or No to the questions listed on the Supplemental Instructional Hours tab.
