The general requirements for submission of the Actual Cost per Pupil Report (A4-1/A4-2 forms) are contained in the instructions.
To assist with the preparation of the forms, the Department is making available an Excel workbook used by the Department of Education to review A41-A4-2 worksheets. This tool is not a replacement for the actual forms and use of the tool is subject to the following terms and conditions:
Upon election of the A4-1/A4-2 method of determining tuition rates, a regular school district must continue to utilize this methodology until such time as Commissioner approval to change back to the Commissioner's Report methodology is requested and received.
Limited technical assistance will be available. However, general questions related to the completion of the A4-1/A4-2 worksheets can be directed to Heather Leary at 609-376-3690.
