    Optional Flexible School Day Program

  • Optional Flexible School Day Program (OFSDP)The goal of the program is to target those students that are unable to attend school in a traditional setting. For example, the students must seek employment to support their family or must provide child care during traditional school hours. Under these circumstances, the students might only be able to attend school during evening hours or a couple of hours during the day. It is not the intent of the OFSDP for a school district or charter school to move students out of an existing traditional setting to provide educational services under the OFSDP. If your district is considering implementing an OFSDP, be aware that the only optional or flexible elements pertaining to the OFSDP are the hours, days of the week, or locations within the district that educational services are provided. OFSDP students must be afforded certified teachers and all other required student services that are provided to students in a traditional educational setting.Board of Trustees required to hold Public Hearing concerning proposed OFSDP application and must review performance of OFSDP annually.Application must be submitted 90 days before the start date of the program.A student attending an OFSDP may be counted in attendance for purposes of funding only for the actual number of contact hours the student receives, not to exceed 1,080 hours per twelve-month period.It is in the best interest of the charter school to serve students in the traditional program whenever possible. For example a student served for 2 hours each day in the regular program may generate a maximum of .5 ADA, where a student in the OFDSP program may only generate a maximum of .33 ADA.Total minutes each reporting period will be converted to days to calculate ADA and FTEs.Attendance will be reported through PEIMS 500, 505, and 510 record.Students enrolled in the OFSDP will have an ADA eligibility code of 7.It is acceptable to create and report both 400 and 500 records for the student if the students enrollment status changes from a traditional program to either the OFSDP or if the status changes back to a traditional program from the OFSDP. Note: If a student is participating in both the traditional attendance program and the OFSDP, simultaneously all attendance must be reported through the OFSDP 500 series records.
