So sorry that I didn't have my chat visible and didn't see these comments!
Meghan Deutsch - ESC
34:25
Are the same time and effort requirements mentioned at the last Office Hr meeting, applicable here as well?
Jennifer Freund
39:02
So you are saying we can use our CRF 4012 money to cover increased instructional time and then we can also apply to CRF 5012 money to salaries of the same people if they are working with at risk students?
Liz Duncan
39:58
Do you have a template for that calculation?
Kara Drake
42:01
Can you send out a link to the at risk numbers used in the SFA with the presentation?
Jennifer Freund
42:02
Okay I am following you thank you.
Eduard Storz
42:22
Can you clarify, can we just use our increased instructional time calculation if that is sufficient to document use of the 4012 and 5012 or do we have to use this new At Risk % calculation for the 5012 funds?
Eduard Storz
43:39
Thanks!
Lucinda Lounge
44:16
We are using the 5012 money for cleaning supplies, addtl PPE, etc (not salaries) do we have to use our At-risk percentage for these things?
Jennifer Freund
44:52
So can we use our the percentage of free and reduce students for the 20-21 year as our at risk % for the calculation?
Janice Martin
46:34
tablets is what we bought is that ok? do I have to track the tablets to the students?
Gale Gallegos
47:02
Janice we did also.
Liz Duncan
47:23
Can the expenses be retro to March?
Debra Myers
47:32
Do the 5012 monies follow the same guidelines as the CRF 4012 monies?
Shelley Becker
48:21
A majority of districts have already spent all CRF funding (4012). So, the only way to claim back some of the October state equalization has to be coded to a percentage calculation of At-Risk? Correct?
Debra Myers
48:55
Can you give me some examples specific at risk?
Jonathan Levesque
49:23
The letter says "The State assumes the responsibility for demonstrating that overall these CRF funds are spent forat-risk pupils based on projected increase in at risk pupil count from March to May 2020." Why do the districts need to apply the at-risk allocation. The state has already proved it out.
Gregory Fieth
49:26
So if we need to charge more months than just October to At-risk, we can go back to August when we started paying teachers?
Tim Kahle
52:49
Gregory, yes you can go back to the beginning of this fiscal year in July.
Shelley Becker
53:12
So districts are not receiving any additional funding, rather the October state equalization is being recoded to an At-Risk calculation.
Debra Myers
53:34
Do you just have to spend a percentage of the 5012 monies on at risk or the whole dollar amount?
Melissa Brunner
54:00
Do these funds need to be shared and distributed to charter schools? Or if we have the salaries and benefits for October can we keep the costs in the District?
Tim Kahle
55:50
As long as the district is passing through the normal monthly PPR to the charter school, the district has done what is needed.
Jennifer Freund
56:12
Can we apply it to the monies we pay to BOCES?
Terry Kimber
56:30
Per my email, Once the documentation standard of using these funds as CRF is applied these are no longer PPR funds and are a cut to the districts PPR.
Terry Kimber
58:07
Then we do not need to provide that documentation. It is not our responsibility at that point
Lucinda Lounge
58:43
Now that I have to go back to July 1 to re-allocate all of my expenses to fit the at-risk calculation, how do I go about changing my quarterly CRF report?
Sandra Nees
59:32
So overall our PPOR should of been lowered by 37 million and given separately to be accounted for as at-risk?
Terry Kimber
01:00:23
And if they had done that Sandra that would have gone to the Negative Factor.
Sandra Nees
01:01:32
thank you
Shelley Becker
01:01:48
I am struggling to understand the mechanics - and appreciate any insight or clarification. Can the Gov's Office provide decisions to CDE? My understanding is that this has to go through the legislative process.
Terry Kimber
01:01:54
I don't mind the reporting it is the documentation that is the issue since this is PPR $. Not CRF funds.
Ron Patera
01:03:23
Since districts can spend the funds on any costs associated with at-risk pupils, can we spend it on out-of-district facilities?
Lisa Anderson
01:03:32
Since many of our families did not fill out their free and reduced applications, can we use our FY19/20 at risk percentage?
Jonathan Levesque
01:07:10
Is KPMG guaranteeing the process (At-risk % allocation) for single audit purposes, as no audit guidance is available yet. 
Terry Kimber
01:07:54
Is the definition only Free and Reduced? or can this be our SPED, ELL etc?
Liz Duncan
01:07:57
Free or free and reduced?
Donna Villamor
01:08:16
Why is this part of PPR but not the other CRF dollars?
Doug Moss
01:08:23
How is this not supplanting
Debra Myers
01:10:20
Sorry I missed the conversation about SPED. Can part of the 5012 money be spent on SPED supplies or for salary and benefits for a SPED teacher?
Terry Kimber
01:11:08
So as for the out of district placements, We are not suppose to know who is or isn't. Can we use our district average ?
Tim Kahle
01:12:24
Had the at-risk count projections not been increased by the additional funding, the counts in the current funding model in row 138 would show lower than they currently do for the districts and the total state share in row 311 would be lower than the model currently shows. This would then mean that the one-twelfth payments to districts from July – November would have been lower than they have been. http://www.cde.state.co.us/cdefinance/fy2020-21_district_funding_calculation_worksheet_hb20-1418
Terry Kimber
01:12:37
Also If we use out of district placement it will/could affect our MOE calculations going to 5012 from 3130
Jessica B
01:13:06
For school single audits what are the recommendations in completing audits if guidance isn't released prior to December 31 deadline. Should financial audits be finalized and single audit portion pulled out and released at a later time?
Terry Kimber
01:15:36
What else can we do to get this resolved reasonably?
Terry Kimber
01:16:23
It isn't right taking our PPR and adding strings attached money.
Brian Cortez
01:18:50
