To determine the fiscal impact on school districts that do not receive the Home-to-School program funds, Education should identify all school districts that provide transportation services to their students but are not eligible to receive state funds for the Home-to-School program from Education for regular education transportation, special education transportation, or both.
Education just recently conducted a comparison of the local educational agencies (LEAs) that report expenditures via the standardized account code structure (SACs) as well as the county-district-school (CDS) file of all LEAs to identify the LEAs that receive transportation funding. This comparison allows Education to identify the LEAs that report pupil transportation expenditures but are not eligible to receive Home-to-school Program funding. (See 2009-041 p. 20)
