Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From January 2010

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)
