INFORMATIONAL LETTER # 110
POLICY CODE: CF
TO: Superintendents of Schools
All School Finance Personnel
FROM: Susan A. Gendron, Commissioner
RE: Update to Accounting Handbook IIR
A draft copy of the new handbook is included in this packet. The hope is that school finance personnel will begin to review these changes and implement as many of them as possible in the upcoming 2004-2005 fiscal year. This will be considered the “transition” year, providing an opportunity for staff to make comments about the changes and identify potential problems before the Maine Department of Education begins data collection on the new structure, currently slated for fiscal year 2005-2006.
Questions, concerns and other comments regarding the draft accounting handbook should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that a file may be maintained to identify potential problems, develop solutions and enable the Department to provide a final copy of the handbook at the end of the transition year.
(Note: The draft copy of the new handbook is not posted on the website)
