2019-20 Financial Audit

The schedules for schools participating in the Special Needs Scholarship Program (SNSP) are available in Kiteworks to the auditor on the school's Auditor Authorization form. See the Kiteworks Instructions for information on how the auditor can access the documents in Kiteworks. The 2019-20 Enrollment Audit certification letters and 2018-19 Financial Audit certification letters are also available in Kiteworks.

  • Paycheck Protection Program-Choice/SNSP Reserve Balance Impacts: The department has waived the 2019-20 requirement to include the forgiven portion of the Paycheck Protection Program loan that was used for educational programming purposes as offsetting government assistance revenue in the Choice Programs and SNSP Reserve Balance Schedules. The department does not have waiver authority for the 2020-21 school year, so the department will begin policy discussions as soon as we are able on amending the applicable administrative rules for the 2020-21 school year.
  • Inclusion of COVID-19 Related Expenses as Eligible Education Expenses:  COVID-19 related expenses may be included as eligible education expenses if they meet the requirements in Wis. Stats. 115.7915, 118.60, and 119.23 and Wis. Admin. Code PI 35, 48, and 49, respectively. The requirements are explained in the Financial Audit related bulletins at . As long as expenses related to the COVID-19 outbreak meet the eligible education expenses requirements, they can be included as an eligible education expense.
