The Arizona Department of Education's (“ADE”) School Finance processes the state payments received by charter and district schools using student and other data submitted. School Finance facilitates the creation of your charter holder and charter school CTDS and Entity ID numbers and your inclusion in ADE’s system. These numbers have to be assigned before you can upload the estimated student count that will be used for your August payment. To receive a CTDS and Entity ID number, you must submit an Entity Profile Form online after your charter contract with the Board has been executed. Once you have been established in ADE’s system, School Finance will assign you an account analyst.
