If an employee of the elementary and high school is paid only using one of the district’s budgets, why must I report the employee’s position under both districts?
For accreditation purposes, the OPI will use the Terms of Employment (TOE) data to determine whether the school has an adequate number of FTE in required positions, including educators, administrators, librarians, and counselors. It is VERY important to list those positions under the appropriate school district and school code when submitting the TOE report. Otherwise, the data might reflect accreditation deficiencies.
For positions that are not required for accreditation purposes, the distinction is not as critical but is still important. Positions and FTE related to bus drivers, custodians, food service workers, and most other classified staff are being collected for purposes not related to accreditation. Those positions, FTE, and actual compensation will be reported by school district (not by school) under state law. Associating those positions with particular schools will not be required in TEAMs.
