NOTE:    To download a copy of the EF-M-43 "Transportation Data for Out-Of-District Special Education Students, Homeless Students and Career & Technical Education Students," click on the link below. Then save the file to your computer "before" completing.   Return the completed form as an Excel spreadsheet to Paula Gravelle paula.b.gravelle@maine.gov as an e-mail attachment.

Each school administrative unit must complete and submit the 2012-13 Transportation Data for Out-of-District Special Education Students, Homeless Students and Career & Technical Education (CTE) Students Report (EF-M-43) by September 15, 2013. The data from this report may impact the calculation of the Essential Programs and Services Transportation Allocations.

If your unit does not have any expenditures or mileage to report, please submit a “zero” report by checking the “this is a zero” report box on the first page and sending the excel file electronically to the above email address. 

This report requires information on expenditures, revenues, and transportation mileage for special education, homeless and CTE students; therefore 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.

This form is an Excel spreadsheet and includes a Cover Page for the School Administrative Unit information and three sections to report the required data as noted below. This form must be completed in Excel and submitted electronically in the Excel format.

Section A. Special Education student out-of-district transportation:

  • 2012-13 Total Annual Vehicle Miles
  • 2012-13 Total Gross Annual Expenditure
  • 2012-13 Special Education Transportation Receipts*

* Any receipts that the school units may receive to pay for a special education student being transported out-of-district – such as reimbursement for the transportation of a State Agency Client if the student is transported out-of-district.

Section B. Homeless student transportation in accordance with 20-A MRSA § 5205, sub-section 7:

  • 2012-13 Total Annual Vehicle Miles
  • 2012-13 Total Gross Annual Expenditure
  • 2012-13 Homeless Student Transportation Receipts**

** Any receipts that the school units may receive to pay for a homeless student being transported.

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

  • 2012-13 Total Vehicle Miles To and From CTE Facility “Per Day”

  • 2012-13 Number of Annual CTE Transportation Days

All other columns will automatically calculate in the Excel spreadsheet. 

To ensure accuracy as we analyze your data, please submit the EF-M-43 Report electronically”, in the Excel format, as an email attachment to paula.b.gravelle@maine.gov.  

Then print and sign the cover page and either fax it to (207) 624-6791 or scan and email the signed cover page to Paula Gravelle.

Again, all school administrative units are required to submit this report, even if it is a “zero” report.
