> Message from Ed Dennis, Deputy Superintendent of the Oregon Department
> of Education:
> Many of you have received an e-mail message from an ex-employee of the
> Oregon Department of Education. I want to take this opportunity to
> correct some misinformation.
> Ensuring accurate State School Fund (SSF) payments is a high priority
> of the ODE. We work in partnership with business officials in every
> school district to review ADM information to make sure it is correct.
> Historically, any adjustments in collection and/or estimates are
> corrected by May. It is a normal part of doing business, and ODE is
> on track to meet that timeline for this year.
> Last week, ODE made changes its organizational structure in order to
> improve data collection and reporting, and one of those changes was to
> the administration of the state school fund:
> ADM collection and reporting has been moved under the direction of the
> Office of Assessment and Information Services. State School Fund
> payments have been moved under the direction of the Office of Finance
> and Administration. This organization allows for a better system of
> "checks and balances" than we had under the previous arrangement.
> If you have concerns about these issues, please contact us at
> ode.helpdesk at state.or.us.
> Questions? Contact Gene J. Evans, Communications Director
> Oregon Department of Education
