Correction to count dates for Virtual 19 and Under as shown in the Enrollment Handbook FY23 and Counting Kids presentation slides: The count dates for Virtual 19 and under students, as initially shown on pages 17-19 in the Enrollment Handbook, were in error and have since been corrected. Virtual students must attend at least two days to be included in the district’s virtual enrollment count, including: a single day on or before September 19 AND a single day on or after September 20, but before October 4. We apologize for the error. If you are concerned about how this affects attendance for your district’s students 19 and under attending virtually, please call Fiscal Auditing at 785-296-4976. Thank you
