SUBJECT:      EF-S-02 Special Education Program Report


            The enclosed Special Education Program Report (EF-S-02) is to be used to report all special education personnel expenditures for locally operated programs during the 2001-2002 school year.


The EF-S-02 consists of:


            1.  Summary Report of Local Expenditures

            2.  Financial Report by Program of Local and Federal Expenditures

            3.  Eleven (11) Special Education Program Reports for reporting personnel data.


            Please be sure that actual expenditures are reported, and that these figures agree with the figures reported on the EF-M-45 (see pages 1 and 2 of the instructions for further detail).  These expenditures must include costs of personnel supported by State Agency Client funds received either as a result of billing on the EF-S-04B or through an Advance Payment (formerly called “State Agency Client Grants”).  The Special Education Program Report is the means by which local school administrative units may claim state subsidy for approved special education personnel expenditures during the 2001-2002 school year.  Failure to submit this report by July 31, 2002 could delay your subsidy payment.
