Training Guide

1. NRS Guide to Smart Fiscal Management for Adult Education Programs

This guide is the eleventh in a series of guides designed to assist states with implementing National Reporting System (NRS) requirements, improve data quality, and use NRS data to promote program improvement. This guide is unique among others in the series in its focus on fiscal management, but it maintains the goal of improving state data quality—in this case financial data—for NRS reporting. This guide is designed to support national training on fiscal management of the adult education program conducted in June 2011 and accompanying materials.
