This is a reminder that the EF-M-13 Private School October Resident Enrollment Count report is open October 1st. Private schools that do not have any “publicly funded students” may complete only the EF-M-13 October 1st Resident Enrollment report, but have the option to also enroll their non-publicly funded students in the Synergy State Edition.
Private schools with publicly funded students must report all “publicly funded students” in Synergy State Edition. Synergy State Edition reporting is necessary in order for the sending school administrative unit to be allocated subsidy for the student. State subsidy to a school administrative unit is often the source of funding that is used to pay the student’s private school tuition.
A “publicly funded student” is defined as a Maine resident student whose educational cost (such as tuition) has been paid for by public funds from a public entity such as the following:
- Municipal school unit (including those in a School Union)
- School administrative district
- Regional School Unit
- Community school district
- Education in the Unorganized Territory
- Maine Indian Education
- State Funds from a State Agency such as the Maine Department of Education
- Federal Funds from a State or Federal Agency
