Guidance Tips and Recommendations
**Important clarification regarding benefits**
PI-1202 FRINGE BENEFIT GUIDANCE:
The coding for cash in lieu of benefits was clarified with the U.S. Census Bureau, to which DPI reports financial data, in fiscal year 2013. Cash in lieu of benefits should be coded as a benefit under object 290 (detailed account 296).
Another item to note is that Fund 73 OPEB contributions that are not run through payroll, but rather allocated as a journal entry, should also be included as a 210 benefit. If a district is using a payroll report to determine the benefits and does a journal entry at the end of the year for the OPEB contribution, it is likely that the OPEB contributions are not being properly reflected on the PI-1202 as they should be.
- Teachers with assignments for grades 7 and 8 cannot be reported as 53-0050, Teacher-Elementary All Subjects. You must report the specific subject(s) taught. Example: 53-0400, grades 07-08 (mathematics) 50% FTE, 53-0300, grade 08 (English) 50% FTE.
- We recommend use of individual's name as listed on their most current social security card to reduce the name discrepancy warnings between agencies.
Long Term Substitute Reminder: As a reminder, starting with the 2012-2013 school year, all positions with assignment type of 0(Professional - Special Education) or 1(Professional - Regular Education) with the exception of 53- 0970(Teacher/Intern) are required to answer the question “Is this assignment being performed by a long-term substitute?
