SACS2013ALL Software Readme

The following contains the latest information about the SACS2013ALL software. It is in addition to or supersedes information that may be found in the SACS2013ALL Software User Guide.
What's New (in the SACS2013ALL 10/18/13 release, version 2013.2.1)

The following describes the changes made to the SACS2013ALL Software October 18, 2013 update (version 2013.2.1). This updated version includes the minimum changes needed for the 2013-14 interim reports due to the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF). Note that only the interim reporting periods were modified, and the User Guide was not updated to reflect these changes. CDE is working through the remaining details of the new funding formula and will include additional LCFF-related changes in next year’s SACS2014 and SACS2014ALL software.

What's New (in the SACS2013ALL 07/02/13 release, version 2013.2.0)

Listed below is a summary of changes made to the 2013-14 budget and interim, and the 2012-13 unaudited actual, components of the SACS software that was released 07/02/13. It does not include any changes made to the 10/18/13
release. We incorporate changes requested by users wherever possible; you may recognize one of your suggestions being implemented here.

This year our efforts were primarily focused on required changes (e.g., changes due to the second-year effects of GASB Statement 63 (GASB 63) and the new Education Protection Account State Aid funding), with some enhancements, as summarized below. For additional information on each of the changes, refer to the relevant sections of this user guide.

      • CDE has recently been notified by the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) that the local expenditures only method using any base year earlier than the preceding fiscal year is not appropriate. Due to time constraints, the CDE cannot make changes to the SACS2013ALL software to eliminate the local-only base year options from the maintenance of effort calculation worksheets (LMC-A, SMC-A, LMC-B, SMC-B, LMC-I, and SMC-I). However, LEAs and SELPAs are instructed to not use the local-only base year option in the Section 3, Part B, Subpart 2 to demonstrate compliance with the MOE requirements.
      • If Section 1 of LMC-A or LMC-B worksheet is completed, please contact the CDE Special Education Division at 916-327-3507 for further instruction about obtaining an additional form for completion and submission.
KNOWN ISSUES:
Symptom

Formatting problems sometimes occur when printing forms from the Table of Contents. For instance, all of the grid lines will print in the upper left hand corner.

Probable Cause

Printer drivers. Unfortunately we have not found one printer driver that works for all components of the SACS software.

Resolution/Workaround

Various printer drivers work differently with the SACS software. Try changing the printer driver or print from the open form rather than from the table of contents.

Symptom

GPF error or system runs very slowly.

Probable Cause

The computer runs out of physical/virtual memory.

Workaround

Avoid opening too many windows concurrently. If the error is received, shut down the application and reboot the machine.

Problem

Known problem with Windows 7. Some users have reported problems running the SACS Software on Windows 7 64-bit PCs. The problems are not consistent among users, but they have been encountered while importing, exporting, running the technical review checklist, updating the validation tables, and printing, including printing from the Table of Contents.

Workaround

While these problems are not resolved, there is a workaround available at the SACS Software Known Problems/Fixes Web page.
