Pierson SUBJECT: Estimated June 2002 Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) Unweighted FTE (Survey 4) The fourth calculation of the 2001-02 Florida Education Finance Program requires an estimate of June 2002 Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) unweighted full-time equivalent students (UFTE) by school, program, and grade. Attached are copies of your districtís estimated June UFTE that was used in the 2001-02 FEFP third calculation. This information will serve as your districtís estimated June 2002 DJJ UFTE, unless you choose to make revisions. Please provide the following: 1. If an estimate is being provided, the attached copy of Form ESE 135 should be completed for each school by Friday, February 22, 2002. 2. The attached form letter, which certifies the estimated June 2002 DJJ total, must be signed by the superintendent or designee and submitted no later than Friday, February 22, 2002. If the estimated June DJJ UFTE from the third calculation is to be used as your districtís estimated June 2002 DJJ UFTE, or if you anticipate zero DJJ UFTE for June, a letter which certifies the total UFTE is still required. Submitted UFTE will be reconciled to the total certified in the letter. For districts that submit data after the February 22 deadline, the estimated June DJJ UFTE from the third calculation will be used as the districtís estimated June 2002 DJJ UFTE. The submission of the estimated June DJJ UFTE is critical, as this FTE is used in the fourth 2001-02 FEFP calculation which is the basis for district funding through June 30, 2002. In the event it is necessary to fax the data in order to meet the February 22 deadline, the following fax number should be used: (850) 922-6742 or SunCom 292-6742. Please direct the fax to Karen Johnson, and call this office to verify receipt.
