2014-2015 WISEstaff (PI-1202) Reporting Information

 7/20/2015 - A notice has been issued regarding 2014-2015 Staff: Salary, Position & Demographic Reports. 

 

*** Notice regarding 2014-2015 Staff: Salary, Position & Demographic Reports ***

All of the 2014 - 2015  School Staff: Salary, Position & Demographic Reports will be ready by December 2015. DPI implemented a new staff reporting system in 2014-15.  The system closed for data reporting later than previous years.  There is typically a three to four month lag between the system closing and the data being released for reporting.  For this year, that means a December release date.  The system will open again in the fall of 2015 with reporting resuming in the summer of 2016, as has been normal practice in the past.

 As with any new data system implementation, we anticipate data quality issues in the first year.  Data reporting for 2014-15 will carry a cautionary statement as a result.

 

This site provides districts with information and changes regarding the PI-1202 Fall Staff Report application. Members who will be interested in this site include district IT staff, software vendors, business manager/department, human resource director/department, staff responsible for completing the PI-1202, and district administrators.

  10-0010 Director of Instruction/Program Supervisor/Local Vocational Education Coordination In the past we had a breakout of different director of instruction duties but there were already comparable codes that existed so these additional director of instruction codes are being eliminated.  The 10-0000 code DOES still exist but the other codes that were specific to a certain types of program coordination are no longer needed.  Consequently, if someone needs to be reported with these specific coordination duties, please use the 64 position code range instead.  Note, there are two that will not be in the 64 position code range.  One, the 10-0010  (Local Vocational Education Coordinator) should be reported as 93-0000.  The second is 10-0025 (School Safety Coordination) should be reported as 99-9170.

**Important clarification regarding benefits**

PI-1202 FRINGE BENEFIT GUIDANCE:

There are two items that are being clarified for the collection of fringe benefit data.
  • 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.
Updated Contract Fringe Benefits Definition:
Include the total of all items under Object Code 200 Employee Benefits in the WUFAR Handbook. They are 210 Retirement, 220 Social Security, 230 Life Insurance, 240 Health Insurance, 250 Other Employee Insurance, and 290 Other Employment Benefits, including cash payments in lieu of benefits.

 

Recommendations:

  • 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?"
