Summer and Interim Sessions

Summer 2021 Online Instruction

DPI has a proposed revision to the PI 17 administrative rule in process that would make permanent the ability for school districts to count online instructional minutes for all grades in determining summer school membership FTE. Counting online summer classes for all grades was allowed in summer 2020 under Emergency Rule 2003, which is no longer in effect. The lack of a permanent rule does not prohibit districts from offering online summer classes to all grades, but DPI cannot guarantee those minutes will be able to be counted until a permanent rule is promulgated (takes effect). The proposed rule is subject to review and approval by the Governor and Legislature. If the rule is promulgated before DPI has to collect summer school minutes and determine membership FTE this fall, it will be applied to all online classes offered in summer 2021.


Summer membership for summer and interim session classes is reported to the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) using the School Finance Reporting Portal. The following worksheets are completed and used for reporting the required information:

Combines PI-1804 (Summer and Interim Session Membership) and PI-1805 (ITP Summary). PI-1805 is the form needed for reporting the summer school participation of students officially enrolled in the Integration Transfer Program (ITP - commonly referred to as the "Chapter 220" program). Only districts in the Milwaukee area are eligible for this program.

Note: Please use the "AcadCourse_Fee Reconciliation" tab in the Excel workbook above to reconcile student fee revenue and cost on a per course basis. Another tab, "7-12 Online Fee Reconciliation," is also available to the right for your use if needed.
