  • Frequent Financial Deckhands

**NOTE: This new process applies to Traditional Public School SFAs ONLY.** All other SFAs should follow the normal process and schedule for submitting financial reports.

In an effort to become better financial stewards, the Financial Management team is requesting quarterly financials for the 2014-15 school year.  As discussed during the Financial Management Toolbox session at the annual conference, we want to adjust our sails to manage the gusts and winds of change that occur throughout the fiscal year that we may not be able to capture effectively with semi-annual reporting only.

Quarterly reporting allows us to be more knowledgeable about areas or items of concern and to get a handle on our sails and adjust them as needed to keep us financially intact and accountable.  The SFA may choose to provide a copy of the form that is generated by the district’s financial software, or complete the FC1-A Financial Analysis Worksheet.

**IMPORTANT NOTE** Quarter 1 reports for fiscal year 2015 (for the period of July 1- September 30, 2014) are due by Monday, November 17. Please email your report to Tara Tyson at tara.tyson@dpi.nc.gov or mail it to the Raleigh office (to the attention of Tara Tyson) at:  6324 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC  27699-6324.
