2017-18 Driver Education Cost Report
Per Public Act 97-1025, effective Jan. 1, 2013, the State Board of Education is required to provide an annual report of the per capita Driver Education cost. The 2017-18 Drivers Ed Report
has been compiled and is available online. The report utilizes expenditure and revenue data submitted by school districts via their audited Annual Financial Report ending June 30, as well as the number of students provided Driver Education in the same year. District Annual Financial Reports for fiscal year 2018 can be accessed at ISBE's Historical Reports webpage

Audit Adjustments Policy Change – State Programs
Please be advised that the State Board of Education is changing the manner in which audit adjustments are applied for state grant programs. Specifically, all audit adjustments assessed and finalized by the Federal and State Monitoring Division for state grant programs, such as Early Childhood Education and Career and Technical Education Improvement, will be applied to the source project year in which the audit was assessed. For example, an Early Childhood adjustment for $250 assessed for a grantee back in FY 2017 will be applied in that grantee’s FY 2017 Early Childhood project.
In the past, ISBE had applied prior fiscal year adjustments at any amount for state grant programs in the current active project for the grantee. This new policy change will result in refund due notices to the grantee that will be issued in the month following the application of the adjustment. Grantees have 45 calendar days to return the amount due. This policy change affects state grant programs only. All adjustments for major mandated categorical programs or amounts assessed for federal grant programs will continue to be applied as they have in the past.
