SUBJECT:       2005-06 Transportation Data for Out-of-District Special Education Students, Homeless Students and Career & Technical Education Students Report (EF-M-43) – Due July 31, 2006

The 2005-06 Transportation Data for Out-of-District Special Education Students, Homeless Students and Career & Technical Education (CTE) Students Report (EF-M-43) is now available on the Department of Education website.  This data will impact the calculation of the Essential Programs & Services Transportation Total Allocation for 2007-08 funding.  Because this report requires information on expenditures, revenues, transportation mileage for special education, homeless and CTE students, I encourage you to have your unit’s business personnel complete this form with the assistance of your unit’s transportation, special education and CTE personnel.

Section C.  CTE (Vocational) student transportation in accordance with 20-A MRSA Section 15672, sub-section 22-A:

All other columns will automatically calculate in the Excel workbook.  To ensure accuracy as we analyze your data, please submit the EF-M-43 Report “electronically” as an email attachment to suzan.cameron@maine.gov   All school administrative units are required to submit this report.  If your unit does not have any expenditures or mileage, please submit a zero report.
