This workshop will be conducted by the DPI School Finance Team. Although open to all, this "how to do it from the ground up" workshop is geared toward new administrators or those with less than 3 years' experience. It will include:

  • A detailed discussion and hands-on practice of the 2019-20 revenue limit calculation
  • What to do with the October 1st Equalized Property Valuation from DOR and the October 15th General Aid Certification from DPI
  • Determining the impact of the exempt business computer valuation ("Computer Aid")
  • Conceptual overview of Equalization & Special Adjustment Aid (General Aid)
  • How the pieces all fit together (revenue limit/general aid/levy; equalized property valuation/levy/mill rate)

The extended time will allow participants to use their own district's numbers to do the various calculations with hands-on help from the School Finance Team. The goal is for you to be confident in your budget, revenue limit and general aid numbers so the board can certify your district's levy correctly. This is your opportunity to make sure you're getting it right!

Items to bring with you to the workshop

*This information will be available on the SFS Team website so districts may choose to bring a hard copy or simply access the information online while at the workshop.
